Pitzhanger Manor Gallery | Crafting Narrative: Storytelling through objects and making | Media Education | Scoop.it

London | 10.09.2014 - 19.10.2014

"Crafting Narrative explores how contemporary designers and makers use objects as mediums to tell stories. The exhibition will focus on practitioners who challenge and investigate the narrative potential of objects and making to convey and reflect on themes as diverse as history, culture, society and technology.

New and commissioned works will be shown alongside film, text, illustration and photography, highlighting how objects can be used as affecting and compelling narrative forms."
