TOUR: Striking Impressions - Curator's View

Join Sam Revell (Assistant Curator) from the Museums & Special Collections for a walking tour of the new exhibition in the Library Gallery. Sam will be chatting about some of the themes and highlighting some of the exhibits. All welcome!

Striking Impressions - Curator's View

“Striking Impressions is an exhibition about how faces have been interpreted and depicted in different ways. Anatomy, divination, caricature, sculpture, painting, masks – there’s a lot on display! We don’t just want people to look at stuff though – throughout the exhibition we’re encouraging visitors to reflect and engage with the displays creatively. There’s even a creative space in the middle of the gallery where you can just sit and use the art supplies provided.” 

Sam Revell (Assistant Curator)
