A creative space to spend time with texts and materials related to our exhibitions.

The Resource Room is open to all, and allows you to spend time with texts and materials on subjects explored in the artworks displayed in our two galleries. Feel free to use our drawing station and activity sheets; paper and materials are provided free of charge for all the family to enjoy.


Collected Shadows – An exhibition displaying 200 eclectic photographs from the mid-1850s to the present day. Drawn from the Archive of Modern Conflict, the images include scientific, astronomical and botanical studies, portraits and aerial studies. More info

Uriel Orlow – An installation that looks to the botanical world as a stage for politics at large through film and sound work. More info




Children’s activities:
As well as plenty of tools and materials to get stuck in to drawing, you’ll also find activity sheets in our Resource Room. Designed to accompany the exhibition, these can help young minds engage with the artwork and inspire their imagination to create their own masterpieces.
