Focus on Indian textiles in the exhibition, with the large scale piece Tipu's Tent and a range of treasures from displays highlighting India's considerable contribution to the history of cotton and global trade. Juxtaposed with this is contemporary work by Liz Rideal, whose fascination with the textiles of India leads her to use Indian fabrics both as inspiration and raw material to create the artworks on display.
