What's on at UCL Art Museum

Re-Launch

Re-Launch

Date: 27 April-12 June, Monday to Friday | Time: 1-5pm | Location: UCL Art Museum, South Cloisters, Wilkins Building, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT | Price: Free | Age group: All

Re-Launch is UCL Art Museum's inaugural exhibition that marks the reopening of our space after a programme of improvements.

Re-Launch presents a selection of objects, prints and video made in response to our collections and the theme of re-launch. Its contributors hail from the Slade School of Fine Art and have participated as students in our celebrated annual Slade/UCL Art Museum collaborations over the course of the past six years. While some artists investigate the sculptures, prints and drawings within our collections, others experiment with the physical spaces of the Museum to either exploit or explode notions of the archive and its structure.

Light is the stuff of magic, but it’s so ubiquitous we can take it for granted. Although the sun is our source of energy, the light that it produces has huge impacts on us far beyond the functional. Join us for a long weekend of performance, discussions, installations and walks that illuminate our complex human relationship with light. Along with bacteriologists, historians, artists and architects, we’ll explore the cultural and scientific importance of light.

'On Light' sees UCL collaborating with the Wellcome Collection on an eclectic weekender of activities and events. UCL based activities will take place on Saturday 2 May from 1 to 6 pm on Malet Place, including an open afternoon at the Institute of Making, and 'The Cabinet' presented by UCL Museums and Collections. Events will be taking place at the Wellcome Collection from Friday 1 May through to Monday 4 May.

More details will be available from the beginning of April from the Wellcome Collection's website.
