A fashion statement

18 December 2017 by Mannika Dhadwal

We’re super excited to announce that The Singh Twins will be exhibiting their new works Slaves of Fashion at the Walker Art Gallery, opening January 19 – 20 May.

Exploring the history of Indian textiles, Empire, enslavement and luxury consumerism, and the contemporary relevance of these issues in the world today, the exhibition focuses on the relationship between Britain and India. Hidden details of Europe’s colonial past and its legacies are uncovered, including current debates around ethical trade and responsible consumerism.
