Description

From high fashion to high street consumerism, cheeky ceramics to controversial chairs, provocative lamps to ‘rubbish’ jewellery, this major exhibition subverts your preconceptions and challenges your relationship with objects you use on a daily basis.

Subversive Design explores how designers, makers and manufacturers react to the world around them, playing with form, function and materials to create objects that provoke and amuse.

For over 200 years craft and design have been used to engage and challenge political and social issues in both obvious and more hidden ways.

The exhibition includes work by a wide range of designers and makers, including Alexander McQueen, David Shrigley, Studio Job, Philippe Starck, Grayson Perry, Richard Slee, Campana Brothers, Vivienne Westwood and Leigh Bowery.
