Exhibition Visits

This exhibition was highlighted to me this evening, after a friend had seen it on their travels with work (we had previously had a conversation regarding plays on portraits).

What’s your favourite Ashmolean story?

My Ashmolean, My Museum is a photographic campaign produced in collaboration with high profile individuals and members of the local community. Each portrait tells a unique story about the Ashmolean’s renowned collections of art and archaeology and the sitter’s relationship with the object.

The fine-art photographer, Theo Chalmers has produced the eye-catching series of portrait photographs to convey the spirit and excitement of the new Museum building, in the lead up to the grand opening in November 2009.

I personally, really liked this play on items contained within the Museum and the narrative angle of the promotion. In my opinion some of the portraits were extremely successful but other were not quite as strong for me.
