Overview

The Yellow Wallpaper exhibition, curated by contemporary artist Tom Gallant, takes us on a journey into the world of storytelling and imagery that has influenced his art practice, and in particular the dress, titled Dress09, made in collaboration with fashion designer Marios Schwab.

The exhibition’s title is taken from Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s novella The Yellow Wallpaper (1892), which powerfully conveys a claustrophobic world inhabited by a Victorian wife passively imprisoned by her husband.

The novella provides a framework for images and influences that relate to Dress 09.
