Insect Odyssey will offer an insight into the insect world via the visual responses of twenty-five contemporary artists to the publications which, since the 17th century, have documented and illustrated these intriguing creatures. Each artist will receive an entomological publication from which to create new work.

The original scientific publications will form the genesis of the investigation, providing a creative challenge and liberating odyssey for the makers involved which includes painters, printmakers, sculptors, ceramicists and jewellers, together with artists working with glass, installation, film and sound.

This exhibition will be located in our first floor gallery and King's Room.
