New Photography for Main Library Exhibition – Collect.ed

The Digital Imaging Unit have been working on an amazingly diverse range of material recently thanks to a new exhibition being prepared for the Main Library by exhibitions intern Emma Smith. Collect.ed is the title of the exhibition described as “Curiosities from the University’s collections”. This work has presented the challenge of photographing a cast of the serial killer Burke’s brain, seven prehistoric shark’s teeth and a fabulous box of shells collected by Charles Darwin himself. Collect.ed will open on 5th December 2013 and run until  1 st March 2014, Monday to Friday 10.00am – 5.00pm, Saturday 10.00am – 1.00pm, Free Admission!

    This exhibition looks amazing! What a fantastic opportunity for an intern to get to work on a project like this. All the best to the DIU and Emma Smith in preparing this. 🙂

    I’m abroad ’till mid March 2014 but would love to see this exhibition. Is it going to tour? It should do! Absolutely fascinating and a potentially massive turn-on for arts & science students at all levels. Me too and I’m retired!

      Sadly, there are no plans for a tour at the moment. Hopefully you’ll be able to see some of the items when they return to their own collections dotted about the University in March, but it really is wonderful to have them together for these few months.
