Subversive Design

Exploring how designers, makers and manufacturers play with form, function and materials as a reaction to the world around them.

Design isn't always created for aesthetic purpose or pure functionality; as this exhibition sets out to prove, sometimes the makers have a bigger axe to grind.

Fashion, furniture and handicrafts by the likes of Alexander McQueen, Grayson Perry, Vivienne Westwood and David Shrigley are brought together to explore the way design has been used to challenge political and social issues over the past 200 years.

As such, the selected items promise to 'subvert your preconceptions and challenge your relationship with objects you use on a daily basis'.
