The Singh Twins: Slaves of Fashion explores hidden narratives of empire, colonialism, conflict and slavery through the lens of India’s historical textile trade.

Featuring original digital mixed medium light-box artworks, drawings and paintings by The Singh Twins, as well as objects from the artists’ personal archive, the show explores modern day legacies and debates around ethical consumerism, racism, and the politics of trade.

The Singh Twins will present selected works and objects from Norfolk Museums Service’s collection in dialogue with their own; research which has been the starting point for a new commission, to be presented for the first time as part of the exhibition. The show features important recent works, such as the large-scale triptych Rule Britannia: Legacies of Exchange, as well as new works produced during the Covid pandemic.
