Ethics and Aesthetics - Living in a Material World

ON

Sat 11th Mar to Tue 22nd Aug 2017

Dates and times

St Andrews Museum

Using objects from our ethnographic collections, the exhibition explores hidden meanings behind everyday objects, such as jewellery, clothing and domestic items. Ethnography is the study of people and cultures, and the objects on display span centuries and continents – from South American pottery and beaded African jewellery, to Chinese porcelain and carved ivory figures from Japan. The exhibition focuses on design but also looks at some of the ethical issues surrounding the production, acquisition and display of these objects.

Come along and find out more about the wider world around us and keep an eye out for events and activities linked to the exhibition. Follow them on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter @MaterialWorld17.

Curated by postgraduate Museum & Gallery Studies students at the University of St Andrews
