In(ter)ventions: Object Histories Outside and Inside the Museum is the next CDA student-led workshop scheduled to take place in the British Museum’s Sackler Rooms on 12th February 2015. This exciting workshop, organised by Naomi Lebens (Courtauld Institute of Art/British Museum) and Felicity Roberts (King’s College London/British Museum) will explore how ‘museum objects have been used, changed and re-contextualized over the course of their existence’.
The In(ter)ventions programme is now finalised and can be found on the workshop’s website. The themes, expertise and topics are diverse, including ancient gems, birds of paradise skins, reliquaries, Tibetan book covers and Suffragette coins. The accompanying keynote paper by Arthur Macgregor and the discussion to follow will, no doubt, be just as interesting.
Registration opens soon! See you all there!
