29 January – 4 September 2016 Continuing the celebration of post-war design this show features highlights from the Whitworth’s collection of 1950s and 60s wallpapers.

At the heart of the exhibition are papers from the ‘Palladio’ range that signalled wallpaper’s revival after it fell out of favour with modernist architects. Including designs by Roger Nicholson, Audrey Levy and Lucienne Day the wallpapers on display will take you through abstraction, pop, op-art and psychedelia.
