An exhibition of new and thought-provoking work in collaboration with Bath Spa University.
Take a second look at pieces from the Holburne’s permanent collection through the eyes and work of MA Ceramics and Textiles students.
Wander throughout the Museum and discover a contemporary twist within the collection galleries. Whether responding to individual pieces in the collection, highlighting objects not usually displayed or commenting on Sir William Holburne himself, this exciting collaboration between Bath Spa University and the Holburne Museum will stimulate new interpretations and ways of looking.
