Dress to redress: Exploring Native American Culture

Claverton Manor, Claverton Down, Claverton, BA2 7BD, Bath

19 Mar - 3 Jul 2022

Description

The American Museum & Gardens presents Dress to Redress, an exhibition of the work of contemporary Anishinabe artist Celeste Pedri-Spade, from 19 March to 3 July.

Dress to redress: Exploring Native American Culture

Featuring a series of spectacular wearable-art pieces, personal artefacts and photography, alongside historical items from the Museum’s collection, the exhibition will demonstrate the continuing legacy and profound importance of visual and material culture. This is the first time Celeste Pedri-Spade’s work will be exhibited in Europe.

Dress to Redress will focus on the role of strong women in community, using fashion to explore how stories and experiences of Indigenous and European women both connect and disconnect. Inspired by various designs and materials Pedri-Spade uses her work to remedy the past, revising male-dominated historical narratives, that fail to recognise the powerful role that women have played in their respective communities.
