Exhibition: Curiosity

A Hayward Touring exhibition curated by Brian Dillon and in association with Cabinet magazine.

This exhibition, curated by novelist Brian Dillon, zooms in on ‘curiosity’ as the motor which spurs us on to acquire knowledge, but also as a guilty desire for the pleasures of new and strange things.

Like its ancestor the Wunderkammer, this exhibition happily juxtaposes past and present, to create a picture of knowledge and invention that is encyclopedic but highly eccentric.
