We designed the graphics for the Crafts Council’s touring exhibition ‘A Curious Turn’. The exhibition launched in London a few days ago, and will set off on a nationwide tour in October. The exhibition explores the history of automata – ‘amazing moving mechanical sculptures’ operated by the turn of a crank to set the mechanics in motion to amaze, entertain and provoke thought in the audience.

We recently curated and designed this exhibition which celebrates 100 years of graphic communication by women who studied or taught at Central Saint Martins. It generated a lot of interest, and interviews and blog posts can be found at Buzzfeed, Central Saint Martins, American Institute of Graphic Arts, It’s Nice That, Johnson Banks, and Adrem Recruitment.
Coinciding with Women’s History Month, and international women’s day, the exhibition was based on Ruth’s ongoing research into the history of women in Britain in graphic design. It was on show to the public at Central Saint Martins from 23 February to 22 March 2016.
Many thanks are due to the team of CSM graduates and students who helped make the show happen:
Miho Aishima and Kat Garner for their invaluable work on curation and design. Thank you also to Amanda Choy, Clara Metter, Elky Li, Emilien Rabin, Lucy Budd and Syd Hausman.
