Exploring how craft & the decorative can pack a political punch...


Bringing together contemporary artists from across the globe, ‘Decorating Dissidence’ takes craft, decorative arts & design as a starting point to explore how dissident action has been woven into artistic practices often associated with the home. Alongside a conference held at Queen Mary, University of London, the exhibition showcases artists whose work engages with the decorative and the political. 

The exhibition will take ‘craft’ as a broad term. We want to think about: the body, stitches in time, fashion, DIY zines, graphics, protest objects, ceramics, space, identity and more. We’re open to your interpretation.
