New Lanark World Heritage Site
New Lanark, United Kingdom
New Lanark, an 18th century cotton-spinning Mill Village and one of Scotland’s 6 UNESCO World Heritage Site, is delighted to announce the opening of London’s Fashion and Textile Museum’s Artist Textiles Picasso to Warhol exhibition at New Lanark on the 26th January 2018.
Textile production and innovation has been the continuous thread throughout New Lanark’s history, from the village’s early years as the one-time largest cotton manufacturer in Scotland, to now producing over 60 shades of high-quality woollen yarn using historic textile machinery and launching the world’s first Organic Tartan in 2015. Through an exciting new partnership, New Lanark will be hosting a prominent touring exhibition from the Fashion and Textile Museum in London in 2018. ARTIST TEXTILES Picasso to Warhol traces the history of 20th century art in textiles with highlights including prints of work by Salvador Dali, Henri Matisse, Pablo Picasso and Andy Warhol.
