UCL Museums April

Spring has sprung, the sun is shining, and UCL Art Museum is throwing open its doors with 'Re-Launch', an inaugural exhibition that marks the reopening of the space following a period of refurbishment.

Re-Launch presents a selection of objects, prints and videos made in response to the theme of re-launch, with contributors hailing from the Slade School of Fine Art. If you've not visited the Art Museum before, why not swing by and take a look?

Other highlights this month include The Light Project at the Petrie Museum, and a range of Strange Creaturesevents at the Grant Museum.

Hope to see you at UCL Museums soon.
For a full list of our upcoming events, please see our What's On pages.

Join UCL researchers and academics at a range of events exploring light and ancient Egypt.

Discover how the Ancient Egyptians illuminated the world around them, investigate the symbolism of light in hieroglyphs, and learn about the role of photography and film in early archaeology.
