Althea McNish: Colour is Mine


The first major retrospective of Althea McNish (1924–2020), the first Caribbean designer to achieve international recognition and one of the most influential and innovative textile designers in the UK.

Drawing on extensive new research, this exhibition explores McNish’s extraordinary career and her transformative impact on mid-century design, along with her enduring influence today. Highlights include items from McNish’s recently uncovered personal archive – much of which has never been seen before. Also on display will be examples of McNish’s original designs alongside her most celebrated textile and wallpapers.

This touring exhibition from the William Morris Gallery, London, has been curated by Rowan Bain, Principal Curator at the William Morris Gallery and Rose Sinclair, Lecturer in Design Education at Goldsmiths, University of London.
