World So Obscured: Harmonising Natural History and Art

Launches 26 March

A digital exhibition by Newcastle University Art Museum and Gallery students

World Obscured




In this digital exhibition by Newcastle University‚Äôs Art Museum and Gallery Studies students, you are invited to slow down, pause and contemplate the history behind objects from the Great North Museum. 

Working with artists from The NewBridge Project, World So Obscured is a sensory experience combining the history of objects with moving image, poetry, sound and still artworks.

From the journey of polished pebbles held for years in the belly of a now-endangered bird, to the collectible, romantic token of a shell - come and explore the relationship between natural history and art. 

In a chaotic world, what gets overlooked? How do we decide what gets noticed or ignored?

Exhibition launches Friday 26 March
