A selection of photos from the workshop can be viewed here.
The exhibition draws parallels between the eighteenth century and the present. The past is illustrated through selected objects from the museum’s 18. century collections, here among textiles and fashion. The present is represented by the British-Nigerian artist Yinka Shonibare MBE and three Danish fashion artists, Nikoline Liv Andersen, Laura Baruël and Anne Damgaard.
The exhibition is on show until 23 September 2012.
