Exhibition

This activity has ended.

What happens when we reconsider our preconceived ideas of what cotton represents around the world? Visit the third and final chapter of Knowing Cotton Otherwise, and explore cotton's hidden narratives.

New perspectives

Cotton is perhaps the world's most well-known fabric, however, many stories behind cotton are lesser known. These untold and sometimes unexpected perspectives have been collected and brought together in the exhibition Knowing Cotton Otherwise.

In the third and final chapter of Flipping the Script designers Nsimba Valene Lontanga and Angelo Carlos Marcus Elizabeth take you on a journey through their heritage and culture while challenging you to reimagine fundamental concepts within the realm of fashion and design.

The exhibition unpacks and brings into question established ideas of 'classic' and 'basic' style staples, as well as redefining 'typically African' design and print. What happens when we reconsider our preconceived ideas of what cotton represents around the world?
