The symbolism of drapery will be explored in an exhibition, Fold: Drapery in Contemporary Visual Culture, at the end of this month. Curated by De Montfort University professor Gen Doy, it looks at the subject as a form of iconography, linking traditional elements from Christian and Muslim cultures with the theoretical observations of French philosopher Gilles Deleuze. The consultancy Foil is working on an identity, exhibition catalogue and posters for the show. Paintings and photographic works are featured by artists like Susan Butler, Hemanti Chauhan and Liz Rideal. Fold runs from 30 August until 26 October at the City Gallery, Leicester, and then tours nationally.
