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.
‘Eights in the Octagon: Medieval and Renaissance Perspectives’
Curated by: Chiara Franceschini, Catherine Keen, and Sophie Page, with William Maclehose and Alison Wright.
Inspired by the Octagon’s shape and location, historians of science and culture investigate the number eight as a significant principle in Medieval and Renaissance systems of measurement, cosmology, design and creativity.
