Can Art Save Us, Millenium Galleries

Can Art Save Us, Millennium Gallery, Sheffield

22 October – 31 January 2010

Drawing on ideas and insights of critic, author, artist and scholar, John Ruskin (1819-1900). At first glance an unlikely eco-warrior, Ruskin was ahead of his time in his recognition of the environment as a finite resource. Alongside paintings, sculpture, installations and mixed media work from Tate, the V&A, the National Gallery and the Natural History Museum, Can Art Save Us? will see Ruskin’s legacy illustrated through a diverse selection of historic and contemporary art. Drawing on Sheffield’s unique Ruskin collection of art and artefacts, this exhibition thrusts Ruskinian thinking into the 21st Century to illustrate art’s great capacity to stimulate debate and, ultimately, change.

I was invited to exhibit a series of my crochet products that were created as part of my China residency Happy Stacking.
