BEHIND THE SCENES: Collection at Work
Experience the Collection… with a twist!
Crawford Art Gallery is home to part of the National Collection, but how well do you know the stories behind it?
BEHIND THE SCENES takes visitors on an unexpected journey through the Collection as it unfolds across two floors and several thematic chapters, including Conservation & Care, Making, Acquisitions & Loans, Diversity, and Research & Attribution, to name just a few.
Delve into a rich array of artworks from across the centuries and get to know your National Collection.
What stories can a painting or sculpture reveal from its past? How do we care for and better understand these national treasures? Who decides what – and who – is collected? And which tales are yet to be told?
BEHIND THE SCENES considers what a collection might say if it could speak.
