The William morris Gallery is to be the first in the UK to exhibit a new installation by Turner Prize winning artist Jeremy Deller.

English Magic features objects designed or used by Morris himself, selected by the artist from the gallery's collection.

The show, commissioned by the British Council for the 2013 Venice Biennale, will run from January 18 to March 30 at the venue in Forest Road, Walthamstow. 

Deller said: "For me William Morris is a fascinating character who wore his heart on his sleeve, mixing politics and art in a way no one has managed to since.

"[The] William Morris Gallery seemed the perfect place to start the tour, it just makes sense."

The Gallery, which has recently undergone a £5 million refurbishment, will host a series a banner-making workshops and a question and answer session with Deller to accompany the exhibition.
