Friday 10 January - Sunday 2 February 2014
In the lead up to Treasures in MK, our first main gallery exhibition of 2014, we invited local enthusiasts, collectors and artists to share their personal collections with us to create this January Project Space exhibition.
From an assortment of vintage tights to a curious collection of fictional cosmic ephemera, the exhibition celebrates the practice of collecting in all its forms, and the pleasure that comes from the search and accumulation of the wondrous and bizarre.
What is it that drives us to collect, sometimes obsessively? What do collections tell us about a person? The exhibition draws on the rich history of the ‘cabinet of curiosities’ and invites the audience to create their own narrative and meaning for the items on display.
Wunderkammer will be open to visitors during the exhibition changeover period.
Normal gallery hours apply, with early closing at 5pm on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
