Substance Exhibition Photos - Opening night Saturday 21st May

The Substance exhibition is fascinating.
'Women in History' is the subject, and people's choices are varied.
It was amusing going round while two young people were looking at the exhibition. One of them said 'Wow, Margaret Thatcher', the other one must have looked mystified because the first one said 'Don't you know who Margaret Thatcher is?'
It was difficult to keep quiet.

Nicola Vesey-Williams 'Madonna's Corset' knitted wire with woven yarn, crocheted video tape and vegetable netting. It's a handbag and is not for sale.
