11 January – 6 February 2019 | Lethaby Gallery
We are delighted to host a retrospective of the work of Caroline Broadhead. Bringing together work from across four decades, this exhibition reflects the breadth of Caroline Broadhead’s pioneering creative output.
Using jewellery design as a departure point, Broadhead’s objects were designed to be worn on the body and changed through touch and interaction. Further encompassing sculpture, installation, performance, textiles and photography, her practice is concerned with the borders of the individual – between inside and outside, public and private and the balance between materiality and image. Often working in collaboration, Broadhead’s works are activated by bodies and performers, examining the demarcation of human physicality.
A Central Saint Martins alumna, Broadhead held the positions of Jewellery and Textiles Programme Director and BA Jewellery Design Course Leader for nearly ten years at the College until her retirement in 2018 and is now Professor Emerita. She continues to teach on the course and is a guest lecturer at various institutions in and outside the UK.
Tuesday to Friday: 10am–6pm

‘ReFrame’ –Interrogating representations of women and the portrayal of ‘women’s work’ is the upcoming exhibition of our ex-Program Director Caroline Broadhead and her daughter Maisie Broadhead, at Manchester Art Gallery, opening on the 20th of October.
Working independently, they have made ambitious new works in response to historic representations of femininity in paintings at Manchester Art Gallery. The new works focus on how the pictorial conventions of such paintings and their elaborate frames affect our perceptions of the women depicted. Their aim is to provoke a dialogue about past and present, content and surrounding and to interrogate representations of women and the portrayal of ‘women’s work’.
