Following the new guidance issued by the government, Modern Art Oxford will be closed from Wednesday 23 December, until further notice. We look forward to welcoming you back to the gallery as soon as we can.

Watch: #AskAnArtist – Mariana Castillo Deball’s textile pieces


What and who inspired Mariana Castillo Deball to make the large textile pieces in her exhibition?

In this short clip, we ask Mariana about how these large swathes of fabric were made, and what traditional weaving techniques were used. She also tells us about the early female anthropologists whose lives and histories inspired the exhibition and link to this dramatic display. 

Explore the display in Deball’s exhibition Between making and knowing something at Modern Art Oxford until 17 January. Book tickets here.
