KALEIDOSCOPE

March 31 - December 23

This exhibition is biography imagined through the lens of a Kaleidoscope. The viewer is offered fragments of the lives represented here. There is no linear narrative. Each time the kaleidoscope turns, a different story emerges. There are repeating patterns but different emphases and new ways of seeing, new reflections, new refractions. No one story dominates and one story does not fit all.

in 2021, during Women’s History Month we launched the RHSV Women’s Biographical Dictionary, an online resource which builds profiles of women who have been involved in the RHSV over its 113 year history. This project is the work of Dr Cheryl Griffin and from this online resource, Cheryl has curated Kaleidoscope, launched in March 2022 by Judi Maddigan, which looks at the lives of 50 of those important women.

CURATOR: DR CHERYL GRIFFIN
EXHIBITION DESIGNER: KATRIN STROHL
EXHIBITION PRODUCTION: DR DAVID THOMPSON & HELEN STITT

The exhibition is opened Monday – Friday (excluding public holidays) from 9am-5pm and entry is free-of-charge.
