Contemporary Art Exhibitions
Cabinet of Curiosities Exhibition
When visiting the Whitaker be sure to enter the Cabinet of Curiosities!
The Cabinet of Curiosities was created artist by Bob Frith, perhaps best known for his involvement with the Horse and Bamboo Theatre in Waterfoot. Over the course of a year, Bob searched the museum stores to select objects, paintings and furniture to create a theatrical showcase of the Whitaker’s eclectic collection. Together with items from Bob’s own collection and pieces commissioned by other artists, the installation explores the history of collecting and how early museum collections were acquired.
