Home - MakingFree, no booking required 

Home; an exhibition by Maddi Nicholson and the communities of Milton Keynes comprising of over 100 miniature fabric houses based on photographs of people’s homes in Beanhill Eaglestone, Great Linford and Netherfield.

The exhibiton goes on tour around Milton Keynes and will be joined by a 5 metre high inflatable sculpture of a typical terraced house from Maddi Nicholson’s home town, Barrow-in-Furness. Based on a terrace that has since been demolished, this artwork makes us consider what is saved and what is lost in the name of redevelopment, and what the impact is on communities.

As part of the exhibiton, each venue will feature a programme of events, talks, screenings and Maddi Nicholson will be on hand to talk to visitors about her work and the ‘Home’ project. There will also be opportunities to make your own miniature Milton Keynes house in paper, or to buy an artist-signed limited-edition textile house kit.
