DateSaturday 24th June 2017 to Sunday 19th November 2017
DescriptionShaw's opulent paintings of fantastical worlds are combined with historic textiles, furniture and drawings from the Whitworth collection. The exhibition takes the form of an installation, drawing on influences of renaissance and baroque imagery, combined with theatrical extravagance, nature and poetry, to echo the mythic space Shaw creates in his paintings. New wallpaper designed by Shaw, commissioned specially for the exhibition, creates an extraordinary backdrop for his work.
