Ethics and Aesthetics - Living in a Material World

Using objects from our ethnographic collections, the exhibition explores hidden meanings behind everyday objects, such as jewellery, clothing and domestic items. Ethnography is the study of people and cultures, and the objects on display span centuries and continents - from South American pottery and beaded African jewellery, to Chinese porcelain and carved ivory figures from Japan. The exhibition focuses on design but also looks at some of the ethical issues surrounding the production, acquisition and display of these objects.

Curated by postgraduate Museum & Gallery Studies students at the University of St Andrews
