This exhibition celebrates the life and work of one of the most influential designers of the post-war generation, Lucienne Day.
Lucienne Day: Living Design tells the story of Lucienne’s design career, unfolding in a sequence of photographs drawn from the archives of The Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation. Lucienne Day and her husband Robin Day had a number of connections in Northern Ireland including relationships with Mourne Textiles and Ulster Weavers. The exhibition at the F.E. McWilliam Gallery will explore these connections.
The Gallery’s location in Banbridge, historically associated with the linen trade and home of Fergusons Irish Linen will connect with both the historic and contemporary elements of the inaugural Northern Ireland Linen Biennale.
Northern Ireland’s Linen Biennale celebrates the past, present and future landscape of linen through an extended heritage and arts festival, presented and hosted by multiple venues across the region. It is taking place throughout August, September and October 2018.
