Coded Clothes

Event type:
Location: Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery, Queen Street, Exeter EX4 3RX

What do your clothes say about you? For many communities clothing is an integral expression of the traditions, nationality, status and spirituality through which people define their personal identity and place in society. For others, it’s to attain an ideal of beauty promoted by their society, or to deliberately reject that ideal in order to pursue individuality.

This display shows a special selection of adornments from the World Cultures collection at the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter.
