University of Dundee
Lamb Gallery

Discover some of the fascinating stories behind items in the University of Dundee Archives and Museums. To mark Scotland’s Year of Stories they invited artists, designers and creative writers to explore their stores and choose objects and archives which inspired and intrigued them. This exhibition showcases their responses and brings to life the tales that run through our collections in new and surprising ways.

Follow the lives of jute workers, doctors, explorers, collectors, soldiers, scientists, campaigners and merchants and the impact that they had on Dundee and the world. The new works made by the artists and designers shed fresh light on these tales in creative and thought-provoking ways.
