An item of beauty, curiosity and intrigue, ‘Band Stand’ is inspired by the early history of the brass band movement during the Victorian era. It explores the connections between the development of the railway industry born in the North East of England and the parallel development of brass bands.
Cabinet of Curiosity have used a variety of paper craft techniques on an architectural scale, to draw on the exotic design of band stands and brass band uniforms that were heavily influenced by the Eastern cultures and Orientalism.
6-22 July Shildon Locomotion Museum, County Durham.
