Exhibitions to see, things to unpack

To follow up on the Biba theme of the last two posts, I found out that the Brighton Museum & Art Gallery in the U.K. will be hosting the exhibition, “Biba and Beyond: Barbara Hulanicki” running from 22 September 2012 to 14 April 2013.

I also can’t wait to see the Tate Britain’s exhibition, “Pre-Raphaelites – Victorian Avant-Garde,” opening on 12 September this year and the new, renovated William Morris Gallery in Walthamstow, opening in August. 

Until then I have a lot of unpacking to do.

I just moved 54 boxes and assorted small pieces of furniture out of storage and back into my apartment. Packed away for 5 years, it is like thrift-store shopping -- where everything is a treasure -- as I open each box. Most of the boxes contain art and design books, but there is a good amount of other stuff to be re-discovered.

What is in this antique medical-supply trunk?

Fabric! 1950s fabric, Arts & Crafts reproduction fabric purchased at Liberty & Co., and hand-loomed raw silk -- and that's just the top layer. This is going to be fun.

Have you re-discovered anything lately?

That looks so exciting, rediscovering your treasures all over again. The Liberty fabric is stunning. I must take some photos of my parent's house and blog them, the Arts and Crafts architectural details will make you very happy!
Wish I could come and help you unpack, such an adventure! x

How I would love to see that exhibition - I studied the Pre-Raphaelites and found them quite beguiling.

Lucky you, I love rediscovering things I've put away (though I've never done storage) - sometimes I hide things just to find them again, and revel in the re-discovery of them! :)
