‘Perspective - Inspiration Unveiled’
Craft NI's showcase exhibition at Craft Central, London from the 11th to the 15th of March 2013.
Supported by the Creative Industries Innovation Fund, and located at Craft Central in London's prestigious Clerkenwell district; 'Perspective' brings together work by some of NI's finest contemporary makers in a showcase that aims to bring high quality contemporary craft and applied arts to a discerning London-based audience.
It is hoped that the exhibitors will build export links to support their own future business development and that this high profile showcase will highlight the incredible wealth of Northern Ireland's current contemporary craft sector. Professor Karen Fleming (University of Ulster) is curating the exhibition. Craft NI is delighted to be hosting the exhibition at Craft Central's recently refurbished exhibition space. The exhibition returns to Northern Ireland the Craft NI Gallery in April.
