Many object labels in museums do not tell the full story…
The Uncomfortable Truths project seeks to uncover the truth behind objects on display in Bristol Museum & Art Gallery.
In collaboration with the museum, a group of UWE students and alumni have created a series of podcasts and object labels to reveal how objects were collected, what they represent and their difficult pasts.
Among others, the objects include a Benin bronze head, an Egyptian mummy and a taxidermy rhino. Find out more about the Uncomfortable Truths project.
Join us on the launch evening to hear extracts from the podcasts and a discussion with the students chaired by Dr Foluke Adebisi.
After the talk there is a chance to see the objects in the galleries and meet the students. A bar will be open and DJ Vanessa Maria will provide a soundtrack to the evening.
Update – you can now listen to the Uncomfortable Truths podcasts.
