We’re hosting multidisciplinary artist and queen of tinsel Rachel Burke for her first ever tinsel takeover inspired by our Wonderland exhibition.
Rachel’s tinsel creations have been filmed, shared and loved across Instagram. From Kesha’s larger-than-life tinsel costumes to Splendour in the Grass, Rachel’s craft is the centrepiece of Instagramable moving image moments. It’s only fitting that she’s joining us down the rabbit hole, taking on pop culture’s greatest and most enduring screen icon, Alice.
