Experiencing Images looks at a very specific aspect of life: human relations to images. It is not restricted to the production of images but includes interacting with them, for example by collecting and contemplating them. Images are a human tools for thinking, exploring and communicating.
The show has been curated by the research group with assistance from Dr François Quiviger. It reflects on the group’s research and the ways this makes use of the resources provided by the Institute. The exhibition has been realised with the help and permission of Dr Raphaële Mouren, Ian Jones, Dr Paul Taylor and the Photographic Collection at the Warburg Institute, and Mick Finch and Martin Westwood, Central Saint Martin’s College of Art.
