Join us for a Wednesday Walkthrough – a gallery tour where artists, experts, researchers and academics give short talks in their field of expertise relating to the concepts explored in our exhibition.

In this walkthrough, Amanda Briggs-Goode will discuss Charlotte Johannesson's new exhibition which brings together textiles, digital graphics, plotter prints, paintings and screenprints made over the past 50 years. Image, pattern, colour, texture, material and language recur and play out across time and different mediums. The survey brings handmade paper works from the early 1990s, presented here for the first time, into conversation with new experiments in lace made especially for this exhibition.
