Location
Musée La Piscine, Roubaix

For the first time in France, La Piscine de Roubaix presents the theories and work of William Morris and his fundamental contribution to the recognition of applied arts.

The visionary work of William Morris had a huge impact on his time. He theorised a social, political, ecological and artistic utopia and laid the foundations for what would later become known as Arts & Crafts

Spanning nearly 600 square metres, the exhibition showcases around one hundred artworks – paintings, drawings, furniture and textiles – from public collections in the UK, particularly Tate Britain and the Victoria and Albert Museum, but also from French public collections, mainly those held at the Musée d’Orsay.
