Narrative Cloth Exhibition
An exhibition of new contemporary artworks by three artists from the Department of Fine Art, University of Chichester, Rachel Johnston, Victoria Brown and Shirley Chubb.
The artworks have been inspired by the Museum’s Historic Clothing Project as well as a range of documentary sources used by the Museum’s social historian, Danae Tankard, to investigate 17th century provincial clothing. The artists have each responded to the idea of narrative in these documentary sources – in other words, the stories the documents reveal about clothes and their wearers.
The exhibition will be open from 11am – 5pm from Monday 21 September to Saturday 26 September and 11am – 6pm on Sunday 27 September. Entry is included in the regular Museum admission price.
