Holburne Museum Summer 2017

Tapestry: Here & Now
Friday 23 June to Sunday 1 October 2017
The Holburne Museum
Tapestry: Here & Now celebrates the vibrancy of tapestry-weaving today. The exhibition brings together the work of international makers to showcase the most innovative approaches to the art of contemporary tapestry. £10/£9 concs/ Free to all Museum Members.

Alongside British tapestry weavers, the exhibition features artists from Australia, Norway, Latvia, Japan and the USA with over 20 artists represented, including Erin Riley, Caron Penney, Ai Ito, Jilly Edwards, Yasuko Fujino and Fiona Rutherford. Their work explores themes of enduring relevance including how we respond to nature and the urban environment, how tapestry can tell personal and political stories, and the skill of the hand-made.

The Holburne’s ‘Arts’ tapestry (1934-5) by Edward McKnight Kauffer will also be on show for the first time.

Here & Now was curated by the National Centre for Craft & Design in partnership with Lesley Millar, Professor of Textile Culture and Director of the International Textile Research Centre at the University for the Creative Arts.

A Summer’s Song
BSU Master of Music Singer-Songwriter Showcase – FREE
Join us for a special Summer Up Late featuring live, original music performances from a collection of emerging songwriters from around the world. Each performer has studied, or is studying, their Master of Music in Songwriting at Bath Spa University, and has remained in or close to Bath as they embark on their music and songwriting careers. With musical genres ranging from American folk to emotive ballads, the songwriter showcase will celebrate some of the most exciting sounds and songs to emerge from the city, whilst introducing home-grown, fresh talent. The museum and café will be open throughout, making this a not-to-be missed after-hours experience.

Evening Concert
Richard Frewer (Lyric Baritone)
David Price (Fortepiano
This summer, Richard Frewer and David Price are to perform Schubert’s last collection of songs, published after his death. Schwanengesang consists of thirteen songs: six by Ludwig Rellstab, six by Heinrich Heine and one by Johann Seidl. There may be no narrative coherence to the set but musically they hold together and they are some of Schubert’s most expressive, dramatic and recognisable songs. ♫ Tickets:
