The Home

MA students
18 December 2023 - 11 March 2024
Online exhibition

The Home is an exhibition charting the developments of the home through the 19th and 20th centuries.

Through these object encounters, we can understand how the ‘home’ has changed through time and how different ideas have brought us to the present day.

This exhibition is curated by MA students from the University of Leeds and showcases artefacts from the Smithsonian collections.

Come and discover objects of the home from times gone by and reflect on how we live today!

Visit the exhibition

The Home is part of a wider series of online exhibitions curated by Art Gallery and Museum Studies and Arts Management and Heritage MA students from the School of Fine Art, History of Art and Cultural Studies, as part of an Interpretations course module.
