Wanting to Say
Finding a Place in the Past

This exhibition launches the Midlands Art Papers online research resource, developed by the Department of Art History, Curating and Visual Studies at the University of Birmingham.


The project aims to develop new research, unearth hidden histories, and make links between the wealth of material in the region’s public art collections.  This inaugural exhibition uses Walsall’s Permanent Collection, presenting works which reference story-telling, history, memory and identity.
