UCL Museums & Collections
Exhibitions in the Octagon Gallery
The Octagon Gallery, on the ground floor of the Wilkins Building,
directly under the dome, provides a prominent new space for changing
exhibitions highlighting UCL’s current research in a creative and
visually stunning way, and showcasing UCL’s rich collections. From 2013,
exhibitions in the gallery will be chosen through twice yearly
competitions. Each exhibition will run for six months.
Current exhibition: Digital Frontiers
Smart, Connected and Participatory explores how emerging technologies are changing the way we access and experience culture and asks questions about the nature of art and technology. New digital applications are shaping our daily lives; the way we live, work, and study, but is digital technology really new? Digital Frontiers unravels digital culture, illustrates the power of emerging applications and poses questions about technology and culture in the past and in the present.
