The Ashmolean has teamed up with the TORCH Knowledge Exchange programme to invite University of Oxford researchers and graduates to develop project ideas linking their research to the museum’s forthcoming exhibitions.
We hope that university members will take advantage of the potential of the museum's exhibition content to enrich their own work, communicate to a wider audience, and to develop new perspectives and questions from which to address familiar issues.
Between October 2014 and October 2015, the museum unveils a series of four fascinating exhibitions on British artists, intended to showcase the Museum’s extensive collections and to reference the wider social contexts contained within the exhibitions’ themes. Three of the exhibitions centre on individual artists: William Blake, Adam Buck, and James Gillray. The fourth exhibition brings together a group of thematically linked British drawings. Applications are now welcomed for projects that will engage creatively with these exhibitions.
