Life in Colour: Ranbir Kaur

Saturday, October 13, 2018 to Sunday, January 6, 2019

Ranbir Kaur is a textile and rangoli artist who has developed an international profile through her work with communities across the world. This exhibition brings together a wide range of colourful textile pieces made using traditional techniques, from embroidery and mirror work to doll-making, all inspired by her South Asian heritage. The central focus will be an impressive site-specific rangoli, an intricate floor pattern made with coloured sand, marbles, mirrors and buttons, created especially by the artist for this retrospective exhibition marking thirty years of her career.
