Rise - cooking up character

Well Preserved

This, the definitive multicultural exhibition, brings together two universal themes of women’s material culture - cakes and textiles. Cooking and sewing have been the most portable symbolic markers of continuity after migration.

Eighteen participants baked their offering and told their story as the basis for Rise.
