An exhibition of paintings, prints and assemblages by Colin Whitworth and Simon Draper, in association with the Cambridge Festival of Ideas.

16th to 27th October

Picasso famously turned parts of a machine into an animal sculpture - a bicycle saddle and handlebars into a bull's head. This exhibition brings together work by two local artists, Colin Whitworth and Simon Draper, who specialise in exploring the transformation of pieces of technology into art. A radio becomes a painting, keys become a sculpture and an instructional manual becomes a poem.

The exhibition is open during regular Museum hours (Wednesday to Sunday, 10am to 5pm). Normal entry charges apply. Please use our main entrance on Riverside.

The artists are also running a workshop inspired by the exhibition. Click to see the details.
