A great review of our Anatomy of an Institution exhibition from Lewis Williams, Lewis is a graduate student of the MMU photography course, which was the subject of the Anatomy of an Institution work.
Tonight we will be showing some new work, previewing the extInked project ambassador activity series during the Manchester Museum: Museum Meets evening. There is also lots of additional things happening, including the extInked ambassador reunion and an opportunity to see our Victorian Camera in action and make your own photographic narratives with the museum collection.
This week we have been photographing the new chancellor of MMU; Dianne Thompson CBE, Chief Executive of the UK National Lottery operator Camelot.
The installation ceremony took place at Manchester Town Hall and we had a few minutes with Dianne before it all took place. The photograph from the shoot will soon be on the website and quite possibly marks the close of the Anatomy of an Institution project.
It seems like the perfect place to end, although there will always be more images we can make.
We have produced this photograph as of documentation of an installation by Jacqueline Butler and Sylvia Waltering.
The work is a collection of domestic objects that questions the notion of authenticity, archiving and photographic representation.
