100 Stories of Migration

The 100 Stories of Migration exhibition currently on at the School of Museum Studies (until 13 February 2014) is a striking example of a photographic exhibition that uses the spaces within the School building to full effect.

The display cases have been ‘taken over’ by large scale images.

The large-scale images are powerful, bringing you face to face with the people within the photos.

This image fills the entire corridor next to the Collections Room.

Tablets are used to provide more information about the images (also see the headphones attached to the wall).

Finally, the stairs have been used to transmit images in slideshow format. Unfortunately this was not switched on the day I visited the School but here are some images of the space available. First image is looking down the stairs (apologies for fuzziness) – images are projected onto the large white wall facing you as you descend.

Looking back up the stairs towards the “screen” – the shining crescent shape is the ceiling light!

A better view of the screen (also showing the ceiling light in full).
