Watch: #AskAnArtist – antique museum vitrines in Mariana Castillo Deball’s exhibition

Why did artist Mariana Castillo Deball choose to use antique museum vitrines to display the photographs in her exhibition?

What do they teach us, and why is it important for us to think about where things come from and how they are displayed? In this short clip, Mariana tells us about the 19th century museum vitrines that she borrowed from the Natural History Museum in Oxford for her exhibition.

Explore the display in Deball’s exhibition Between making and knowing something at Modern Art Oxford until 17 January. Book tickets here.¬†¬†
