Perception of Biology

From the Curator of Museum Services at the University of Dundee : 

Perception of Biology :   An exhibition in the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum

Students from second year HND Contemporary Art at Perth College (University of the Highlands and Islands) present their response to the Zoology Museum. Taking influence from historical and visual aspects of the collection as well as responding instinctively, the 12 students have worked intensively over a four week period, inspired by their access to the fascinating and unique 130 year-old collection. 

The project has been run by Anna Orton, UHI Contemporary Art Lecturer, who promises that “the end result will be a collective body of work that showcases a range of responses, encompassing humour, mark-making, collaged imagery and film work.”

Join us for the opening evening on Tuesday 10th March 5pm to 6.30pm.    

The museum will then be open Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th March from 11am to 4pm.  

Admission is free and everyone is welcome.
