'The Singh Twins: Slaves of Fashion' at Firstsite

The Singh Twins: Slaves of Fashion' is the summer exhibition at Firstsite. While each work in the show highlights a different theme relating to the colonial history of India’s textile industry, collectively they reveal not only the beauty, and craftsmanship of Indian fabrics, but also the human cost of luxury goods and the global politics of trade past and present.
