House of Fairy Tales
This exhibition at The New Art Gallery Walsall shows how fairy tales can be interpreted by 23 different international artists. Inspired by familiar stories, each artwork is displayed within the permanent collection, visitors following a trail to find each one. Contributions come from Peter Blake, Cornelia Parker, Rachel Whiteread, Gavin Turk and Paula Rego.
An additional gallery space is dedicated to "Exquisite Trove", a fascinating collection of mysterious objects displayed on shelves, cases , jars and boxes. Each has a tale to tell.
