Select: Curious Collecting

Scarborough Museums and Art Gallery
10 May - 6 July 2008
This exhibition brought together geological specimens from the collection of Scarborough Museum’s Trust and contemporary sculpture, photography and prints from the Arts Council Collection.  Exploring the notion of the museum as a place to collect, identify and present objects, it also recognised artists who use museums and collections as an inspiration for their work. 
Curious Collecting showcased sixteen Collection works by the following artists: Jeremy Deller, Tony Cragg, Abigail Lane, Mariele Neudecker, Nick Martin, Damien Hirst, Rachel Whiteread, Alex Hartley, Gareth Jones, Kerry Stewart and Rebecca Warren.
