Event Description

Donate a piece of old clothing and discover where in the world it could end up!

Everything Must Go follows the journeys of worn clothing as it is sold for reuse and recycling across the world. This exhibition brings invisible global waste economies into public view, explores the people involved and the impact these businesses have upon their lives,and questions our ability to control,contain and curtail waste.

Everything Must Go contextualises anthropological research on textile recycling in India and the UK with collaborative projects including Meghna Gupta’s film Unravel and photographs by Tim Mitchell, hosts recycling workshops with Lizzie Harrison of Remade in Leeds and showcases a resurfaced textile created by Kate Goldsworthy.

‘Talking Rubbish’ on Saturday 21 January brings researchers, designers, filmmakers, business entrepreneurs and third sector leaders together to critically engage with the issues raised and their implications for the way in which we think about our old clothing.

The exhibition has been curated by Lucy Norris and Clare Patey, with communication design by Brighten the Corners and is produced by Holy Mountain.
