Regrettably we are having to cancel the Muybridge and Animal
Locomotion event planned for this evening, due to circumstances outwith our
control. However the Zoology Museum will still be open to the public 6-7pm
tonight as part of the city-wide cultural celebrations for the Commonwealth
From the Curator of Museum Services at the University of Dundee :
On Tuesday 29th July the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum is taking part in a city-wide evening of cultural events to celebrate the Commonwealth Games.
Join us at 6pm for an evening exploring animal locomotion and the extraordinary work of Victorian photographer Eadweard Muybridge.
Curator Matthew Jarron will describe Muybridge’s ground-breaking work, which became a key precursor of cinema, and will discuss Muybridge’s visit to Dundee in 1890 to give one of the Armitstead Lectures.
Dr David Booth of the College of Life Sciences will then describe the evolution of animal locomotion.
The event is free and there is no need to book. Please enter by the front door of the Carnelley Building. For security reasons latecomers will not be admitted.
