This one room exhibition will consist of a new work by the Turner Prize-winning artist Chris Ofili.

It's his first foray into tapestry, and reflects the artist's interest in classical mythology and the stories of his Trinidadian landscapes.

After the exhibition is over the tapestry will go on permanent display at the Clothworkers' Hall.
