Join us for the private view of Lucy Orta Traces: Stories of Migration – an exhibition that offers an insight into the diversity of first and second-generation migration histories woven into the landscape of east London.
In partnership with London College of Fashion’s Making for Change, we proudly celebrate the opening of Lucy Orta Traces: Stories of Migration.
The Nunnery Gallery will be exhibiting a ‘Portrait Gallery’ by Lucy Orta, depicting the makers involved in the workshops in a frieze of 40 canvases. On display alongside the portraits will be ‘Story Cloths’ made by each maker, representing their physical or metaphorical journeys using a range of textile craft techniques.
The walls will be displayed with selections from Needle Around Her Neck, a collection of poems penned by author and Royal Literary Fellow Nathalie Abi-Ezzi published to coincide with the exhibition. A film produced by AKO Storytelling Institute that follows the journey of the Story Cloths will be on show for the first time at the Nunnery Gallery.
Drinks and snacks from the Nunnery Café will be served throughout.
