UCL Museum Studies: Upcoming Exhibition

UCL Museum Studies: Upcoming Exhibition MA in Museum Studies students curating a new exhibition about UCL in World War One. /Follow us on Twitter @IoAExhibition14 We are a team of twenty-nine students on the '13-'14 MA in Museum Studies at UCL developing a temporary exhibition in the Leventis Gallery on the ground floor of UCL's own Institute of Archaeology!

Entitled “Voices of War: UCL in World War I”. The exhibition will present the diverse actions and stories of students at UCL during World War I and will be installed by May 2014. Through this exhibition, we aim to bridge the gap between “then” and “now” and invite current UCL students to form closer associations with the past by conveying how World War I affected the student population involved not only on the front line but also in art, science, and politics. Alongside the exhibition, a private launch party in the exhibition gallery and an evening event at the Science Museum’s Dana Centre based on the links between technology and warfare and the ethical issues they raise will be held in May.

Operating as usual
