Curious Encounters with Objects Past, Present & Future
February 13, 2015 Ian Sapiro
Date: February 26th, 2015 | Time: 13:00 — 16:30
Come along to the The Stanley & Audrey Burton Gallery to experience an interactive pop-up exhibition showcasing the inspiring work of researchers specialising in design, textiles, film, archives and music.
The Audiovisual Archive: Preserving Film Music – Laura Anderson, School of Music
A huge variety of archival materials have been digitised as part of a project investigating the work of film composer Trevor Jones. Laura will highlight how developments in recording technology impact on film music and consider the residual value of the objects themselves. www.trevorjonesfilm.leeds.ac.uk
A group of researchers will present an array of curious objects for you to handle, and be on hand ready to share hidden stories of their research and each of their objects. Inspired by the Gallery’s current exhibition, Nostalgia and Progress: Illustration after the Second World War, expect to hear about projects which connect the past, present and future.
This will be an interactive and informative event open to all members of the public from 1pm to 4.30pm. For all those that take part in this event, tea and cake will be served upon completion of the trail.
