Artists

Seven artists, all currently working in the UK, have been invited to participate in this exhibition.  Each has worked both with or in museums as well as within academic institutions, and the questions and challenges to museums implicit within their work reflects this.

From Michael Leigh’s quirky collages offering amusing ‘behind the scenes’ glimpses, to the stunning and bizarre objects of dialogue for museums created by Karl and Kimberley Foster (hedsor), to Yvette Hawkins’ bookish sculptures challenging categories of knowledge, to Dawn Felicia Knox’s cabinet-like intriguing and mysterious installations, to Hazel Jones’ quizzical collections and strange objects, to Lyndall Phelps’ beautiful taxidermy specimens and pseudo-museum catalogues – each artist offers their own reflections on what it is that museums do, how they do it, and how they might do it differently.
