Visit The Hunterian’s Trembling Museum Exhibition

When: Until Sunday 19 May 2024

Where: The Hunterian, University of Glasgow

Explore the transformative exhibition, “The Trembling Museum,” a collaborative effort by filmmaker and scholar Manthia Diawara, curator Terri Geis, and The Hunterian.

This showcase redefines their African art collection, juxtaposing pieces from the museum store’s ‘ethnography’ section with contemporary artworks in the Hunterian Art Gallery.

Inspired by Édouard Glissant’s concept of ‘trembling with the world,’ the exhibit challenges Western classifications of African art. Glissant’s call for a ‘relational’ understanding, embracing complexity over fixed identities, resonates in connecting historical and contemporary material.

Delve into a thought-provoking exploration of whether the museum itself can ‘tremble’ by fostering relationships between objects, artworks, and diverse histories.
