Stunning Timorous Beasties exhibition to be revealed at The Gallery, Winchester Discovery Centre
Hampshire Cultural Trust have handed the creative reins at The Gallery Winchester Discovery Centre to multi-award winning, internationally acclaimed design studio Timorous Beasties. This exciting exhibition will be revealed on 23 January.
The special installation includes a selection of Timorous Beasties’ own collections, who have been known for making bold and beautiful statements in the design world since 1990.
Founded by Alistair McAuley and Paul Simmons, who met as students at Glasgow School of Art, the Timorous Beasties design studio has both embraced traditional design and defied conventional rules of pattern-making over the last 25 years. The result has been an array of exciting textile collections and collaborative projects at the forefront of British design with clients such as Fortnum & Mason, Famous Grouse, the V&A and Nike.
Janet Owen, Chief Executive Officer of Hampshire Cultural Trust, said: "We've given Timorous Beasties 'carte blanche' over The Gallery and we can't wait to see what they produce. Their sumptuous and surreal work is known throughout the world and this display will give visitors and fans of Timorous Beasties a special insight into this creative duo."
Timorous Beasties are expert in printed fabric and wallpapers and also apply their designs to a range of disciplines, from carpets to ceramics and graphics to products. This striking show offers a fantastic opportunity to see one of the best current British design studios in Winchester.
