The Art Collection is celebrating the University's 50th anniversary by focusing on the cultural impact of 1967, the year it opened its doors to students for the first time. A series of events and exhibitions are being planned for Pathfoot - itself an iconic building of the era - in conjunction with Macrobert and Gardens & Grounds.
From 11th September 2017 until August 2018
This is a pared-down version of a major exhibition, ‘Human Zoos: the Invention of the Savage’, organised by the French colonial history research group, ACHAC, which was held at the Quai Branly Museum in Paris in 2011/12.
This display of 22 banner-style posters charting the history of ‘putting people on display’ will tour 5 Scottish HEIs (Glasgow School of Art, Edinburgh, Stirling, St Andrews, Aberdeen) between February and June 2018.
Venue: Crush Hall Gallery, Pathfoot Building
Dates: 14th till 28th March 2018
