Jeremy Deller: English Magic

  • 1 October 2014 — 31 January 2015

Commissioned by the British Council this new exhibition by Jeremy Deller was conceived and created for the British Pavilion at the 55th International Art Exhibition – la Biennale di Venezia in 2013. The exhibition reflects the roots of much of Deller’s work, focusing on British society such as its people, icons, myths, folklore and its cultural and political history. Deller weaves together high and low, popular and rarefied to create unique and thought provoking work. The exhibition forms part of a national tour, supported by the Art Fund and the first of its kind, that concludes at Turner Contemporary.

A Museum in a Classroom

http://www.24hourmuseum.org.uk/downloads/mclass.pdf

Most people collect and display something in their lives. It might be a collection of family snaps stuck into an album, or holiday souvenirs arranged on a mantlepiece, assembled and displayed without any thought of being a 'collector'. But in the past, and occasionally today, private collections have often formed the basis of new museums.
Developing a museum in the classroom - or at home - is a valuable cross-curricular project which can be linked to the National Curriculum through most subjects, and at all levels.
