London | Chris Ofili: Weaving Magic | National Gallery

Dovecot Tapestry Studio has worked with Turner Prize-winning artist Chris Ofili on a new tapestry which will be unveiled at The National Gallery in London, as the centrepiece to an exhibition titled Weaving Magic, from 26 April to 28 August 2017.

Commissioned by The Clothworkers’ Company, Ofili has been collaborating with the weavers since 2014 to see his design translated into a hand-woven tapestry. The tapestry will be hung in its permanent home in Clothworkers’ Hall, in the heart of the City of London, following this exhibition.
