Night in the Museum


(Show now closed: post retained asĀ archive.)

This show closed on Sunday February 12, 2017 but was fun while it lasted.

Imagine what objects in a museum might look at, if they had a free choice. And how they would appear as they were looking. That’s what this show challenged you to imagine.

Some of the pairings appear bizarre, like the one above. Others are more natural, like the one below:pair1

The Friends can share the credit that this stimulating show ran in Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery for nearly 3 months. Our contribution ensured that Birmingham Museums was selected by the Arts Council England as one of its four regional display partners.

The next show of this partnership scheme – “I Want! I Want” will be on display from April 1, 2017. If the first of the series is anything to go by, you won’t want to miss the next!
