An exhibition which explores the representation of women in culture is set to open soon at The Bowes Museum.
The blimey! collective, a group of female led Darlington artists, took inspiration from The Power and The Virtue: Guido Reni's Death of Lucretia exhibition, to delve into the story of the painting of Lucretia to create this immersive exhibition.
Working with groups of people from school age up, they used the act of sewing onto cloth patches as a means to demonstrate reactions to the mythological tale.
Their work will be displayed on dozens of mannequins, which visitors will be able to walk among as they view the project.
