Wild Worlds Scratch Project

The Wilson

6th-19th April 2016

  • Wild Worlds is an extraordinary and immersive exhibition coming to The Wilson from 25 June to 4 September 2016. To test ideas and exhibition concepts, The Wilson has hosted a number of ‘scratch’ sessions with school groups and families. The display at the Gardens Gallery will show some of the ideas that have emerged from this process, and offer visitors the chance to share their own ideas and try their hand at some of the activities that will enrich the exhibition.
  • Wild Worlds (25 June to 4 September) is an extraordinary exhibition transporting visitors through an immersive and engaging experience based on the theme of mystical stories of animals and fantastical creatures. Drawn from the extensive ceramics collection at Aberystwyth University, the exhibition focuses on the work of 20th century and contemporary Welsh, English, European, Mexican, South African and Chinese ceramicists. The collection reveals how animals are used to represent stories and cultural messages, and to evoke emotions.
  • Taking inspiration from the collection, commissioned artists will transform an entire gallery into a completely immersive environment for families – this is an exhibition full of discovery, performance and storytelling! Look out for accompanying summer activities too!

Open Daily 10am – 5pm

Entry free

What’s Next?

  • Maintenance The east turret is in need of repair to prevent rain leaking in when the wind is in the ‘wrong’ direction. We hope to get this done during gallery downtime.
  • Hire Dates for 2022 The release of dates for hiring the gallery in 2022 is under review pending the availability of dates for events in the gardens.
  • New gallery layout
