Where: Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery
Suitable for: Any age

To coincide with Naomi Frears's solo show at Exeter Phoenix, RAMM has commissioned the artist to create new work inspired by Untold Stories in the collections with a focus on sleeves. Intersecting the worlds of high fashion and work wear, sleeves bring together Frears’ interests in gesture and everyday choreography. Her research and observation of the costume collections in store have provided the catalyst for this new intervention in the Courtyard Case.

Naomi Frears (born 1963) lives and works in St Ives, Cornwall and is based in the historic Porthmeor Studios. Recent solo exhibitions include New Work at Beaux Arts, London; The Picture Room, Newlyn Art Gallery; Kestle Barton, Cornwall as well as a commission for Groundwork, CAST, Cornwall in 2018. She received her BA (Hons) from Sunderland College of Art in 1986 and has shown widely throughout the UK since. Alongside her personal practice she has curated a variety of exhibitions, residencies and events for organisations such as Tate, Newlyn Gallery, Groundwork, Kestle Barton and Falmouth School of Art. Her work appears regularly on the cover of London Review of Books.
