2- 6 May, Rediscover: The Torrie Collection, 3 May, special event
Rediscover: The Torrie Collection
Tuesday - Saturday
Objects from across the University’s collections will join the Torrie Collection this week as part of an innovative project for postgraduate students. Now in its third year, Rediscover: The Torrie Collection enables students to put their History of Art learning into practice to create public displays. Supported by the University Art Collection and with contemporary curatorial steer from Talbot Rice Gallery, the displays foreground fresh perspectives on The Torrie Collection, opening out expansive narratives about curiosity, possession and the endurance of classical themes.
Wednesday 3 May, from 3pm
Join us for a drink on Wednesday afternoon to celebrate the Torrie Collection exhibition, now in its final week. You are welcome to join Neil Lebeter, Art Collections Curator for the University of Edinburgh, at 3pm for an informal introduction to the exhibition. Short speeches at 4pm will then draw attention to the impact of the project, the catalogue launched with the exhibition and the Rediscover: The Torrie Collection projects.
