A Glimpse of a Great Vision
Guided Tour | Lamb Gallery, Tower Building,
Thursday 24 July 2014 - 17:30 until 19:00
This major exhibition features the results of a two-year project by the University of Dundee funded by the Art Fund’s RENEW scheme to build a collection of significant artwork inspired by D’Arcy Thompson, Dundee's first Professor of Biology. D’Arcy’s book On Growth and Form had a huge influence on some of the most important artists of the 20th century, and continues to give inspiration today.
As well as work by notable figures such as Henry Moore, Salvador Dali, Victor Pasmore, William Turnbull and Wilhelmina Barns-Graham there are specially commissioned pieces created in direct response to the D’Arcy Thompson Zoology Museum. The exhibition features paintings, prints, sculpture, video and computer art, and explores the fascinating links between art and science.
Matthew Jarron, exhibition curator, will give a guided tour of the exhibition.
This event has been organised by the Angus Volunteer Fundraising Committee to help raise money for the Art Fund.
