About the show

The Turbanology exhibition explores why the right to wear a turban is central to the Sikh faith, at a time when there are many growing misunderstandings and misrepresentations about them. Turbanology dispels these myths and unravels the real heritage that is wound into a Sikh's turban.

What you can see

Crowned Heads - There are three plinths arranged around the gallery space, all with mounted mannequin heads. Each one models an example of a style of Sikh turban. That turban's unique history can be read from the plinth. Being Framed - There are three picture frames mounted on easels and arranged around the gallery. Each is specific to one of the turban styles featured in the show. All hold images of dozens of Sikhs proudly wearing that turban in their daily lives. Material Witnesses - There are five lengths of fabric in the gallery; Each one unravels a fascinating aspect of the story of Sikhs and their turbans. These stories will be added to as the show tours the UK.
