A collaboration between Queen Margaret College and The National Library: ‘Closet of Curiosities’ is a wearable art response touching on five different collections within the library walls.

Wearable art style exhibit

The National Library of New Zealand is partnering with Queen Margaret College Year 13 Material Technology students to create a wearable art style exhibit. This project is inspired by the collections and artifacts that are held here in the National Library.

The students involved have been tasked with understanding and interpreting a facet of the Library or partners to create a wearable art style garment in response.

This colourful, dynamic and creative display is not to be missed!
