Museography: Calum Colvin Reflects on The McManus Collections

In this major new exhibition Calum Colvin, esteemed Scottish artist and Head of Contemporary Art Practice at the University of Dundee, showcases a series of strategically placed interventions of intriguing photographic artworks throughout the permanent galleries at The McManus: Dundee’s Art Gallery & Museum. Creating a collection within a collection, Colvin’s dynamic artworks, portraits, installations and stereoscopic presentations offer a new insight into Dundee’s rich collections. The end result is magical – stunning works which are almost like a puzzle or riddle. Familiar objects become fascinating and mysterious. In each photograph, the more you look, the more you see.

The exhibition is one of a number of exciting exhibitions and events in a year-long programme to celebrate the 150th anniversary of The McManus. Admission is free. Opening times: Mon to Sat 10am-5pm; Sun 12.30-4.30pm.
