Exhibition Launch - Voices of War: UCL in WWI
8 May 2014
The opening of the new student exhibition, Voices of War: UCL in WWI, is being marked by a private view at the Institute this week.
The temporary exhibition created by MA Museum Studies students is on display in the A.G. Leventis Gallery of Cypriot and Eastern Mediterranean Archaeology until April 2015.
The exhibition focuses on seven individuals from UCL from the arts, politics, science, archaeology, protest and poetry and illustrates their diverse experiences from 1914-1918. Highlighting personal stories and artefacts, the exhibition tells not only of fighting in the trenches but also demonstrates the effect the war had on UCL at home.
The Institute's Museum Studies programme provides a broad academic and professional training in all aspects of museum work, whilst encouraging students to reflect critically on the concept of the museum and its associated practices and provide students with the theoretical and practical knowledge needed to set up, develop and deliver an exhibition project in a museum setting.
