Seeing in a Wider Sense

"Seeing in a Wider Sense" is an exhibition, at the St Andrews Museum, which brings together distinguished Fife based artists Will Maclean and Marian Leven with two members of the Department of Social Anthropology, Dr Stephanie Bunn and Professor Peter Gow.

Both artists and anthropologists reveal aspects of human interaction through their work. They aim to lead the audience to explore and understand aspects of modes of living, such as hunting, herding or fishing, from visual and anthropological perspectives. Artwork and artefacts from Fife, Lewis, the Amazon and Tian Shan provide a starting point for dialogue between disciplines.

The exhibition runs through mid-March as part of the University's 600th Anniversary celebrations.
