Wild & Cultivated: Fashioning the Rose
Friends Private View
Tuesday 24 May, 6.30pm – 8pm
Friends of the Garden Museum are invited to an exclusive private view of our next exhibition!
The rose and fashion are inextricably entwined. Roses, like fashion, are a luxury and they are ephemeral; they are both ‘shown’ seasonally; their appeal is multi-sensorial, and they each incite passion and obsession. Throughout history artists, designers and writers have explored this fragrant flower and its deterrent thorns – a conjunction of opposites – to draw out illusions to love, beauty, sexuality, sin, rites of passage, degradation, and death.
Join us for a glass of wine at a private viewing of this exciting new exhibition. The Garden Cafe will be open afterwards for dinner.
Two tickets maximum per Friend.
