This exhibition celebrates the life and work of one of most influential designers of the post-war generation, Lucienne Day.
Lucienne Day: Living Design tells the story of Lucienne’s design career, unfolding in a sequence of photographs drawn from the archives of The Robin and Lucienne Day Foundation. Lucienne Day, and her husband Robin Day, had a number of connections in Northern Ireland including relationships with Mourne Textiles and Ulster Weavers. The exhibition at the F.E. McWilliam Gallery will explore those connections.
The Gallery’s location in Banbridge, historically associated with the linen trade and home of Fergusons’ Irish Linen, will connect with both the historic and contemporary elements of the Biennale.
