London | Curator's Introduction to Chris Ofili: Weaving Magic

Minna Moore Ede, curator of Chris Ofili: Weaving Magic, will introduce the exhibition during this lunchtime talk on Monday 8 May, 1-1.45pm, at the National Gallery in London. The exhibition will be open from 26 April to 28 August and will feature a new tapestry collaboration between the Turner Prize-winning artist Chris Ofili and Dovecot Tapestry Studio titled The Caged Bird’s Song.

This is part of a season of events inspired by Chris Ofili: Weaving Magic at the National Gallery, which will also include a Weaving Workshop led by Master Weavers from Dovecot Tapestry Studio on Saturday 20 May.
