Morris & Co.

Exhibition and Shows

19 Oct 2020 to 31 Dec 2020 Daily Event

AGSA’s Morris & Co. display has been reimagined with a new presentation of the iconic works, including furniture, ceramics and textiles and the addition of recent acquisitions.

Co-founded by William Morris, one of the most prolific and well-known designers of the nineteenth century, Morris & Co. is a furnishings and decorative arts manufacturer and retailer famous for its focus on handmade craftsmanship.

The display, which showcases the largest Morris & Co. collection outside Britain, features many works linked to Adelaide’s prominent Barr-Smith family, who were major clients.

It includes a number of designs by May Morris, daughter of William Morris, who was one of the leading female contributors to the Arts and Crafts Movement. She was an innovative designer of embroidery, wallpaper and jewellery, and ran the embroidery department of Morris & Co. as well as co-founding the Women’s Guild of Arts in 1907.
