Fully refurbished after a multi-million pound redevelopment, the new displays showcase the collections and collectors that have helped RAMM to become one of Britain’s finest regional museums.

They tell the story of Exeter and Devon from the prehistoric to the present but, more than a local museum, its internationally important world cultures and natural history collections also tell a story of global exploration and collecting in the 18th and 19th centuries.

Original architectural features have been revealed allowing visitors to experience the splendour of the original Victorian spaces. The extension includes a suite of modern, flexible exhibition galleries allowing RAMM to bring to the South West prestigious loans and exhibitions from national partners. Modern services improve the care of visitors and the collections alike.

A new garden entrance links the Victorian museum to its historic surroundings and the neighbouring gardens. The area is one of only five sites classified by English Heritage as an Area of Archaeological Importance.

Bedwyr Williams at RAMM

  • 21 July 2018 — 28 April 2019 *on now

To celebrate 150 years of opening to the public, RAMM commissioned a new work from one of Britain’s most talented contemporary artists.
Bedwyr Williams is an artist, sculptor, writer, film-maker and stand-up comic. He studied at London’s Central St Martin’s School of Art and since graduating his work has been exhibited widely across Britain and Europe. In 2013 he represented Wales at the 55th Venice Biennale and in 2016 he was shortlisted for the prestigious ‘Artes Mundi’ International Art Prize.
Bedwyr works in various media including performance, video, sculpture and text, frequently exploring the friction between the deadly serious and banal aspects of modern life. His practice often satirises the role of the artist and curator by placing them in absurd scenarios. Frequently drawing from his life experiences, Bedwyr’s work offers a critique of our everyday world, while celebrating the obscure.
Bringing his renowned surreal sense of humour to bear, Bedwyr will populate the Queen Street foyer with an array of human faces all found on artefacts in RAMM’s collections. After decades of being examined in glass showcases, the objects will have a chance to get their own back by studying the visitors. Bedwyr will also be creating a video of the faces set within the context of Exeter and the museum’s history.

Extreme Imagination: inside the mind’s eye

  • 30 March — 2 June 2019 *on now

When you daydream, remember, or think of someone you know, do you see a picture in your mind? Is it extremely clear and vivid, foggy or non-existent? If you had no image at all in your mind’s eye, would this affect your work if you were an artist?
Extreme Imagination: inside the mind’s eye explores these questions through the work of 22 artists with aphantasia (no inner visual imagery) and hyperphantasia (its opposite).
These new terms came out of research carried out by the University of Exeter Medical School in 2015, which identified the wide spectrum of variation in our imaginations. It became clear that artists, writers, architects and designers were not held back by an absence of internal visual imagery- far from it- and this has prompted a re-examination of the creative processes we all use.
Come and explore your assumptions about the imaginative world of artists in this exhibition of paintings, videos, sculpture, millinery and more. Test the vividness of your own mind’s eye and challenge your preconceptions about how we use the imagination in art making.
Arranged in collaboration with the University of Exeter Medical School with funding from the AHRC.

Journeying to Light: The Mosaics of Elaine M Goodwin

  • 10 April — 23 June 2019 *on now

Welcome spring with a celebration of mosaics and be entranced by the play of light on gold, coloured glass and marble. This retrospective exhibition celebrates forty years of mosaic art by this remarkable artist.
“My work is about light. For all who look, at each and every moment, light is held, captured, and let go - continually and continuously. It is, for me a sublime engagement.” Elaine M Goodwin
Elaine M Goodwin currently lives and works in Burgundy, France but has a long association with Exeter and RAMM. She studied at Exeter College of Art and Design, has had a studio in the city and has produced many art commissions to enliven Exeter’s public spaces. This exhibition brings together over thirty luminous mosaics to chart the experiences, places and beliefs that have inspired Elaine’s work.

The RAMM collection houses the remains of Czigane, a sledge dog that went on Scott’s 1910-1913 British Antarctic Terra Nova Expedition to the South Pole.

Exeter's Fine Art Collection: A Sense of Place

  • 18 June 2019 — 15 March 2020

Be transported to lands both near and far in this evocative exhibition which explores the theme of place. It features important works from RAMM’s fine art collection from the 18th century to the late 20th century.
Artists through the centuries have sought to capture the characteristics that make a place special and unique.
In the 17th and 18th centuries many artists travelled to Italy as a part of their Grand Tour. They were drawn by the promise of illustrating an ideal classical landscape influenced by antiquity. Artists such as Thomas Patch migrated to Italy making a living from painting views of Florence and Tivoli. The exhibition also features important paintings by Francis Towne and Samuel Prout.
Later works chart the 19th-century development of the modern landscape with the emergence of Impressionism and its emphasis upon painting outdoors from nature. Works such as Frederick Goodall’s painting Pastoral Scene near Cairo, Evening highlight the development of the 19th-century Orientalist painting tradition that saw western artists depicting aspects of the eastern world.
20th-century works include Aubrey William’s vibrant oil painting Bonampak (number 17) with elements of abstract expressionism. Works by Albert Moulton Foweraker are also featured, exploring the effect of light upon the landscape.

The aim of Pint of Science is to provide researchers with a platform to explain their latest findings to the public in the comfort of a pub or similar venue!

  • 8 June 2019 11:30am-6pm

Visit RAMM's family friendly activity stall at Exeter's annual celebration of cultural diversity. The festival presents two days of free live music and performance, stalls offering children's activities, information about local groups and institutions, fairtrade crafts for sale, food and a family friendly atmosphere.
The Exeter Respect ethos is a simple one: racism and prejudice often spring from fear, and fear is often based on ignorance, so they aim to provide an opportunity for all to get to know one another and share Exeter's diverse cultures.
RAMM's stall will offer migration related object handling, free games, family friendly activities and more - all welcome.
