Who Stole My Milk? Exploring Student Homes in London exhibition

An exhibition by Institute Masters students in collaboration with London's Geffrye Museum will be on display at the museum from 15 May-9 September.

The exhibition, entitled 'Who Stole My Milk? Exploring Student Homes in London' will investigate shared and private spaces within London’s international student homes and explore how such spaces can generate conflict, compromise and cultural exchange amongst roommates, and how these factors affect students’ personal identities.

The exhibition will be enhanced by web resources, including a video about the creation of the exhibition and a blog which will provide a forum for discussion and feedback.

There will be a special opening event on Wednesday 16 May from 6.00 – 8.30pm featuring music, workshops and the opportunity to get a behind-the-scenes look at the project through conversations with Institute students.  Tickets are £6 (£4 for students) and will include a glass of wine.  Booking in advance is required.

Any enquiries about the exhibition project may be directed to Katy Daniels and Tz-Ling (Leslie) Lai at press@geffrye-museum.org.uk

The Geffrye Museum has worked in partnership with UCL Institute of Archaeology Masters students for many years. This collaboration provides students with the opportunity to apply theoretical knowledge to real-life practice and gives them invaluable first-hand experience in the museum sector. This project is part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad programme Stories of the World.
