The Wonderland Exhibition opened yesterday in Belfast and runs until the 6 Nov 2008 at the Ormeau Baths Gallery. We've covered the Wonderland Project a lot recently, with a full feature in the latest issue of the SDC members' magazine The Colourist. Wonderland is a visual art exhibition, events and education programme which came about by a joint belief that drastic new thinking is required to address today's environmental issues. It is the result of the three-year collaboration between INTERFACE at the University of Ulster, scientist Prof. Tony Ryan and designer Helen Storey.
The exhibition in Belfast will focus on how the fabrics were made and the thinking behind them (read more here). Not only will visitors get a chance to see the ‘disappearing dresses’ up-close, there is also plenty opportunity to discover the driving force behind the team’s vision of a sustainable world. There are numerous workshops and masterclasses being run by the experts at the Ormeau Baths Gallery, a full listing of which is available in the related-article here and on the gallery website.
