Hello, I’m Alison Hall (better known as Ali) the Exhibitions Coordinator for Great Yarmouth Museums. Frayed: Textiles on the Edge is an exhibition I’m working on with Ruth Battersby Tooke, the Costume and Textiles Curator for Norfolk Museums and Archaeology Service. Ruth is the project curator, and my job is to pull everything together and make sure we’re ready to open on time!
The exhibition will be held at Time and Tide Museum of Great Yarmouth Life. We change our exhibition twice each year, and this will be our autumn/winter show, following Alfred Wallis: Works from the Kettle’s Yard Collections, which is our current show.
Over the next few months as we get ready to open Frayed, I’ll be keeping you up to date with what’s going on and the different processes involved in making the exhibition; things like interpretation, exhibition design, graphics, audio and so on. Meanwhile, Ruth will give you a behind the scenes glimpse at some of the objects and the people who created them. We also hope to introduce a few of the other people we’re working with, through guest posts on this blog.
