Bradford Industrial Museum

Sat 9 Dec 2017

Meet the artist Alke Schmidt in her new exhibition 'Wonder and Dread'. 

1 - 2pm - talk and exhibition tour

Tales from the global textile industry

Explore with Alke, the politics and morality of the textile industry throught time, and how this industry affects and connects people across continents.  Based on a residency at Bradford Industrial Museum, Alke Schmidt situates local stories from Bradford's wool industry in a global context, linking its industrial heritage with the present and where our clothes are made now. 

Each work incorporates a different fabric, chosen for its association with the story being told and combined with painting, stitch or print.
