About

Four visual artists present radical, expressive works that look at dress and costume’s historic and contemporary relationships with ritual, play, morality and resistance. These pieces invite us to think about celebration and well-being, mind and body, and the idea of ‘high’ vs ‘low’ culture.

On Thursday 31st January the exhibition will launch with a free preview from 6pm, continuing until 25th March 2019. New artworks by Leonce Raphael Agbodjelou, Ruby Kirby, Lindsey Mendick & Camille Smithwick, with books from the library’s collection including Joseph Strutt’s 'Sports and Pastimes of the People of England' and John Northbrooke’s 'Treatise Against Dicing, Dancing, Plays and Interludes: with Other Idle Pastimes'.
