Cardboard boxes are filled with objects that were once the fabric of the lives of others. If you were the archivist what history would you tell? This exhibition encourages the public to mine the ore of these objects, transforming them through story and symbol, exploring the idea that the universe is made of stories, not atoms.

Who, What, WEAR, When?
The changing silhouette and social role of women

“Fashion is born by small facts, trends, or even politics, never by trying to make pleats and furbelows, by clothes easy to copy, or by the shortening or lengthening of the skirt.”
Reflecting on this quote by Elsa Schiaparelli (1880 – 1973) this exhibition, centred on costumes from Ceredigion Museum, will explore the relationship between the role of women in society and the changing shape of their fashion from 1850 to 1970.
