Embroidered Minds: William Gowers & the Morris Family

William Morris, designer and social reformer, lived and worked in Queen Square from 1865-81.

Embroidered Minds, a collaboration between artists, writers, doctors and academics, is investigating a “conspiracy of silence” about epilepsy in the Morris family. For this exhibition, the collaborators have embroidered work by William Gowers with their own.

The exhibition will run in Queen Square Library, 23 Queen Square until 26th February 2016. A compilation of images of selected artworks, photographs of the installation and selected text are also available.

Please see exhibition handout for further information.
