DOMESTIC MONSTERS examines ways of thinking about what it means to maintain a practice that emerges from and is shaped, inspired and (at times) limited by domestic space and labour. Making this (unfinished/ongoing) work public acknowledges the invisible, ad hoc and responsive infrastructures of support, conversation and ‘thinking together’ that have gently coaxed these monsters into being.

Where: The William Morris Gallery, free entry

“The William Morris Gallery is pleased to announce Althea McNish: Colour is Mine, the first major retrospective of Althea McNish (1924 – 2020). McNish was one of the UK’s most influential and innovative textile designers and the first designer of Caribbean descent to achieve international recognition. Drawing on extensive new research, the exhibition will explore McNish’s extraordinary career and her transformative impact on mid-century design, along with her enduring influence today. Highlights will include items from McNish’s recently uncovered personal archive – much of which has never been seen before. Also on display will be examples of McNish’s original designs alongside her most celebrated textile and wallpapers.”

The exhibition is being curated by Rowan Bain, Principal Curator at the William Morris Gallery and Rose Sinclair, Lecturer in Design Education at Goldsmiths, University of London.
