Launch of Art installation at J.D McDougall: Newham’s Best Kept Secret

Friday 7 May - Monday 10 May
  • Free

Join the team at Parrabbola Theatre company, whose on-line history of J.D.McDougall, is brought to life by an art installation created by three up and coming artists Andia Newton, Karolina Dworska and Zoe Sanders using fabrics provided by the company.

The installation uses vibrant coloured fabrics from the McDougall range, mounted on two specially constructed frames to mirror the many different ways they were once used in theatres such as curtains, backdrops, and drapes, and how sandbags were once used to balance the raising and lowering of curtains.
