Origins & Endings

The works align with the current interest in the Medical Humanities, and the relationship between bioethics and arts practice as a medium for research and engagement. The exhibition features works by musician Mark Carroll and artist Marianne Wilde. Until 7 March 2020

Heather Ross: The Losses

This exhibition is the culmination of Heather Ross’s practice- based PhD research into the work of artist Kurt Schwitters, specifically focusing on his Merz Barn Wall.

The Losses refers to a term used in conservator’s reports, to describe the ephemera (or fragments) which have been detached or become displaced from the original artwork. Until 9 May 2020
