Ways of Seeing
1 October 2016 to 12 February 2017
The Museum worked with illustrator Chloe Regan, who graduated from the Royal College of Art with a MA degree, to explore different ways of seeing an object. Looking from different angles and observing details, standing from a distance as well as sitting close to the cabinets, Chloe Regan has created a series of drawings showing how she engages with unfamiliar works of art by focusing on their shape, the effect of light and shade as well as surface decoration and texture.
