Exhibitions Muir Trust Residency 2017
The 11th Muir Trust Artist in Residence is James Fox, a textile artist from Lancaster.

James works mostly with machine embroidery and the process of reverse applique to create hangings of various sizes. His work looks at modern life and politics and conveys ideas and questions about our expectations regarding gender roles, work, culture and other aspects of our social and personal lives. He exhibits widely and has recently had an exhibition at the People’s History Museum in Manchester and a residency at the Harris Museum and Art Gallery in Preston.

For this Muir Trust residency James will be selecting items from the varied museum collections in store and responding to these through his work to create new readings and interpretations. He is fascinated by political protest and trade unions and also by craftsmanship and groups on the fringes of social history. His residency will complement The Beautiful Stitch exhibition of treasures from the Embroiderers’ Guild Collection also at the Museum.

James Fox will set up his studio at the Museum in Aylesbury on Thursday – Saturday during the period 21 September to 21 October 2017. There will be Open Studio sessions on Fridays and Saturdays to watch the residency progress.

See our other events for the opportunity to do a workshop with James Fox on 14 October and attend his residency talk on 3 November.
