Wear CRM 12 Oct 2018 – 27 Jan
Mackintosh Interpretation Centre

As part of the celebrations around the 150th anniversary of the birth of Charles Rennie Mackintosh, designer Marie O’Connor created an interactive installation in Gallery 2 that invited the public to participate in a hands-on exploration of Mackintosh’s textile patterns and architectural motifs.

Beyond the rose and the teardrop, the lesser known design vocabulary of Mackintosh was explored through a weekend of playing, wearing, disguising and balancing to create sculptural hybrids of garment, object and architecture.

This exhibition shows the results of that weekend, with images from the event displayed alongside pieces created on the day. All this is presented alongside existing objects in the permanent collection at the Mackintosh Interpretation Centre.
