Discover exhibition 'Unfamiliar'

From within the depths of the museum stores at the RCP at Regents Park, photographer Theo Deproost and physician associate Debbie Jegede have identified objects which intrigue, surprise and delight them.

Working together to create new exhibition, ‘Unfamiliar’, Debbie brought her clinical curiosity and Theo his creative eye to select objects from the RCP’s medical and decorative art collections. These objects were then photographed by Theo, and used to create new, arresting artworks which hang on the first floor gallery of the RCP’s Lasdun Hall, displayed alongside the original objects.

Theo and Debbie invite us to approach these objects and images with a curious mind, to experience them in unexpected ways, and to reinterpret them through the lens of our own experiences.

Join a curator’s introduction

A member of the RCP museum curatorial team will be on hand to provide a introduction to the exhibition ‘Unfamiliar’, its beautiful artworks and the objects that inspired them.

You can book to join us from 5.30pm or 6.30pm.
