In the reception area by the museum entrance you can now view three new exhibitions. These displays were created by students for assessment on the third year Film Studies module 'British Screens', a course which explores the history of the moving image in Britain through the museum collections and is taught by the curator, Dr Phil Wickham.
The students selected the theme, researched and chose the objects and designed and documented the displays. The three exhibitions are:
"Hollywood & Home: A Comparison of commercial and arthouse British directors in the '80s, '90s and '00s", which was curated by Eoin Gibbs, Lison Herve, Lauren O'Neill and Elizabeth Trout.
"The Talkies Hit Britain!", which was curated by Tanish Buttery, Leanne Crook, Andrew Owens and Abigail Roberts.
and "Heartthrobs and Heroes in Britain from 1920 to the Present Day", which was curated by Imogen Buller, Dan Henley and Tess Shennan.
The exhibition will be in place until the beginning of June. The course is one of many at Exeter that involve innovate assessments where students can demonstarte a range of skills.
Thanks to all the students involved in the course and the exhibition!
