Asking 'How English are our homes?', this exhibition highlights domestic objects that have come from overseas or been influenced by other cultures to reveal how many of the designs, decorations, materials and social customs with which we are familiar and which we consider to be ‘English’ might have originated elsewhere. Visitors are encouraged to think about their homes afresh, exploring how other cultures have shaped our personal spaces, our ideas about what makes a home and the way we live. A 'Stories of the World: London' exhibition as part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.
