We are excited to have been given the opportunity to work on the New North South Project. We will be delivering a series of workshops for children and their families inspired by the current exhibitions on at the Whitworth Art Gallery. In response to Shaw’s opulent paintings of fantastical worlds we will combine historic textiles, prints and drawings. The exhibition takes the form of an installation, drawing on influences of renaissance and baroque imagery, combined with theatrical extravagance, nature and poetry, to echo the mythic space Shaw creates in his paintings. Together we will create a new wallpaper to create an extraordinary experience for children and families.Co-curated by Dr. Maria Balshaw, Director of Tate, Diana Campbell Betancourt, Director of Dhaka Art Summit and the artist. The exhibition will be reimagined for the South Asian context of the Dhaka Art Summit, Bangladesh, 2018.The research and practitioner project has been funded through the Lottery and Arts Council England.
