Watch: UCL Flaxman and Octagon galleries unveiled
27 November 2012
UCL's Flaxman Gallery and Octagon Gallery have reopened after bold transformations. Artist John Flaxman's plaster study ‘St Michael Overcoming Satan’ now stands on a glass plinth and the Octagon Gallery has radically changed with new cases, animations and interactive screens to display treasures from UCL's museums collections.
In this video, Dr Nina Pearlman (Manager, UCL Art Museum) and Sally MacDonald (Director, Museums and Public Engagement) discuss some of the history and thinking behind this transformative project.
