Provenance: exhibition and symposium

Cockayne, A, ed. (2010) Provenance: exhibition and symposium. Wunderkammer Press, Bath. ISBN 9780956646200


Published to accompany the International Symposium and Exhibition of Contemporary Fine Art Practice, in response to the theme of Provenance and the Wunderkammer. The exhibition and symposium explore a relationship with the history and ethics of collecting natural specimens, and questions posed by a collision of the past, present and the future of such collections. Provenance, like the Wunderkammer is a commentary on the naturalistic representation of the physical world, to stimulate conversation, inspire wonder and to provide a threshold to view our own reflection in the ambiguous connections between the natural world and humanity.

Item Type: Book

Curated, edited and introduction by Angela Cockayne, the publication includes texts by Stephen Beasley, Philip Hoare, Gabrielle Forshaw, Viktor Wynd and Molly Young. The exhibition was also documented in a self-published 28 page hardback catalogue, introduced by Cockayne and Hoare.
