Discovery, created January - July 2016
'Discovery' was instigated by the Horniman Museum as a pilot project to engage community groups with their collection. Redstart Arts was asked to experiment with the idea of creating objects inspired by personal interest and the collection exhibited within the galleries. Each Redstart artist made their own individual piece housed in an archive box, accompanied by a series of photographs documenting their process.
The Redstarts showcased their work in the 'Hands on Base Gallery' as part of the Horniman's 'Big Wednesday' during July 2016.
'Discovery' was funded by Arts Council England and supported by the Horniman Museum.
