The University of Bradford’s Gallery II space is displaying the textiles section of photographer Tim Smith’s ‘India’s Gateway’ show, celebrating the textile industry in Gujarat and the region’s links with Yorkshire, and Bradford in particular.
The exhibition’s themes take in art, textiles and the politics of independent production, and explore stories of lives interwoven through a shared history of textiles common to Bradford, Gujarat and Mumbai. To explore these themes, Tim is joined by a panel that includes Helen Farrar, Curator of Bradford College Textile Archive; Dr Ute Kelly, Lecturer in Peace Studies at the University of Bradford; and Dr Andy Abbott, Producer of Music and Visual Arts at the University of Bradford.
Free Admission. Limited capacity, booking advised.
