Colour in the Lines - an Honours in Curatorship exhibition

As part of the core Honours in Curatorship course, Working with Museum Collections, each of the twelve members of the class had to choose an object from one of the University of Cape Town’s collections (be it the archaeology collection, the Bolus Herbarium, the Pathology Learning Centre or the oology collection, to name but a few). After choosing their object they researched them as far as possible, putting them under intense scrutiny, and producing an object study. These studies can be found on our Object Ecologies website. From there they had to choose a secondary object from their everyday lives to pair with their original object and, as a class, find a way of curating these twenty-four, very different, objects into one curated project. The exhibition, and accompanying catalogue, titled “Colour in the lines” is what they came up with.
