This group exhibition looks at the ideas contemporary practice has around adornment, exploring cultural, social and material aspects. It looks at the status that detail and embellishment has now in contemporary practice. The highly detailed Mackintosh Museum welcomes this examination also, with the building itself influenced by the Arts & Crafts Movement that Charles Rennie Mackintosh and his peer group were part of.
