Labelling the World

16 November, 2020, 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

This in an online event.

Over the last three years, thousands of people have worked with Derby Museums to co-produce ‘Objects of Love, Hope and Fear: A World Collection’. People on the streets of Derby, co-production volunteers and new friends across the globe have cleaned, photographed, researched, interpreted and displayed this important collection of objects.

However, a gallery like this can never be considered finished and interpreting these objects makes us have honest, open and sometimes uncomfortable conversations about how these objects came to be in the museum’s collection, how they have been labelled and how they represent Derby today. In this workshop, we will co-produce labels for the latest addition to the display, a painting by Punjab-born artist Gurbux Singh Theathi depicting Sikh Guru Amar Das’ Free Kitchen, painted in the 1980s and given to the museum by Derby’s Guru Ajan Dev Gurdwara in 2001.

This event is by invitation only. If you would like to attend please email info@derbymuseums.org.
