Lace-Unveilled-Dollshouse

The past exhibition Lace Unveiled presented work by contemporary artists inspired by lace displayed within the rooms of Newstead Abbey, the ancestral home of the Romantic Poet Lord Byron.

These were shown alongside objects from the world-class Nottingham City Museums & Galleries Lace Collection.

Works include Bragança and Mestre de Avis by Lisbon-based Joana Vasconcelos, a video commission by artist Joy Buttress and designer Manolis Papastavrou, new installations by Shane Waltener in the house and grounds, and the secrets we keep from ourselves by textiles artist Lucy Brown in Lord Byron’s former Dressing Room.

The Lace Unveiled exhibition was part of Lace Unravelled, a season of events to celebrate Nottingham City Museums and Galleries’ world-class lace collection and Nottingham’s machine-made lace heritage.  Lace Unravelled has been made possible thanks to Arts Council England’s Designation Development Fund and The Grand Tour.

Past Exhibition from 10 March 2018 to 22 April 2018

Artists: Joana VasconcelosJoy Buttress & Manolis Papastavrou, Shane Waltener,and Lucy Brown
