28. 4. 2015, 6pm, Workshop Collecting the Sea: 1500-2015

Venue: Grant Museum of Zoology, Rockefeller Building, UCL, London WC1E 6DE

Throughout history, the ocean deep and its inhabitants have been a source of fascination and mystery to collectors, artists, writers, scientists and seafarers alike. Join us to explore how objects, species and myths of oceanic and oceanographic origins have been collected, interpreted, displayed and utilised, and to examine the ocean as a site of enchantment throughout this broad historic time period.

Speakers include: Marion Endt-Jones (Art History & Visual Studies, University of Manchester), Eleanor Morgan (Artist in Residence, Grant Museum of Zoology, UCL), Pandora Syperek (History of Art, UCL) and Jane Wildgoose (Artist/Kingston University).
