Singh Sisters

This exhibition was shown on local news in the East of England. It opened this weekend and is on until September.

It is taking place in Colchester and I hope to try to get down there.

It is called Slaves of Fashion.

It explores hidden narratives of Empire, Colonialism, conflict, slavery and luxury lifestyle through the lens of India's historical textile trade and their relevance to modern day legacies and debates around ethical consumerism, racism and the politics of trade.

Following its huge success at Liverpool's Walker Art Gallery (where it attracted over 105,000 visitors) and Wolverhampton Art Gallery in 2018, the exhibition is planned to tour further venues - both in the UK and abroad.
