Abstract

Lost in Lace saw twenty leading international artists take over the Gas Hall at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery from 29 October 2011 to 19 February 2012 showcasing how patterns, materials and cultural traditions of lace are represented through radical new approaches. The exhibition was produced in partnership between Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery and the Crafts Council, in association with the University for the Creative Arts. It featured large-scale, theatrical and visually spectacular work, which challenged perceptions of what lace can be, it involved the visitor in an environment where spaces became fluid and thread created entirely new boundaries. Many of the international artists were showing in the UK for the first time and the artworks broke out beyond the bounds of the gallery into public spaces.
