The Inventors of Tradition

The Inventors of Tradition is an exhibition, film screening and publication conceived by Beca Lipscombe and Lucy McKenzie (Atelier) and Panel, in partnership with the Scottish Screen Archive at National Library of Scotland and exhibition designers Martha.

At the intersection between art, design and social history, The Inventors of Tradition is a subjective study of the history of the Scottish textiles industry since the 1930s. It brings together samples of world-class design, the archive material of individuals and companies and a series of short documentary films sourced from the Scottish Screen Archive. In response to this material the artist Lucy McKenzie and designer Beca Lipscombe, from Atelier, have produced a series of new works including clothing, furniture, painting and accessories.

Atelier’s new collection has been produced in collaboration with Begg Scotland, Caerlee Mills, Hawick Cashmere, Mackintosh, Muehlbauer, Janette Murray, Steven Purvis and Elizabeth Radcliffe.
