Sea Garden: RAMM’s latest contemporary art exhibition
Posted on: September 5th 2019
Section: Member news


Exeter’s Royal Albert Memorial Museum & Art Gallery (RAMM) presents the first-ever UK exhibition of contemporary artwork inspired by seaweed. Combining film, sound, textile and print, the exhibition explores complex and interweaving issues of feminism and environmentalism.

Sea Garden (16 Nov to 26 Jan) takes as its starting point RAMM’s own collection of historic seaweeds, many of them collected by women during the nineteenth century from beaches in Devon. Often overlooked, these women contributed to our understanding of marine science by sharing their seaweed specimens with male scientists who then used them for their own research.
