Two and a half years in the making, 'The Caged Bird's Song' is a monumental tapestry designed by the celebrated British artist, Chris Ofili, and handwoven by Dovecot Studios. 

Accompanying 'Chris Ofili: Weaving Magic', the artist's ambitious presentation of the tapestry within a specially conceived environment in the Sunley Room at the National Gallery, this publication tells the story of the work's evolution and documents the close collaboration between Ofili and master weavers who have interpreted his designs with astonishing nuance. 

A suite of previously unseen preparatory watercolours and works on paper and a revealing essay by the exhibition's curator, Minna Moore Ede, further illuminate this extraordinary project by one of the most acclaimed artists working today.
