This is the second of a two-part exhibition on contemporary lace. It is part of the European project “Crysalis”. This is a juried show, there were more than 70 applications, of which 40 were selected, to be shown in two successive exhibitions.   The call for submissions was sent to young emerging designers and students  through a network of European partners; the Ti02 campus (Ronse, Belgium), the University for the Creative Arts (Rochester, England), the Plymouth Collage of Art (Plymouth, England) and the International City of Lace and Fashion (Calais, France).

While Lace Effects 1 focused on lace and fashion, Lace Effects 2 is dedicated to the interpretation of lace in contemporary art.
