This exhibition has now closed, find out what else is going on at Norwich Castle Museum & Art Gallery



An eclectic collection of artefacts brought together to reveal humanity’s thirst for knowledge.

The artist and writer Brian Dillon has a skilful ability in finding unexpected connections between objects and ideas. This exhibition focuses on the human compulsion for knowledge together with our more frivolous desire for things that are strange and new.

Presenting a veritable cabinet of curiosities taken from museums, galleries and institutions across the nation, Dillon guides audiences through the passions and obsessions of latter day naturalists, and in the process, reveals how these fascinating specimens have influenced the history of art.
