These evening seminars formed a key part of early Travellers’ Tails public engagement. They explored key questions around the history of art, science and exploration, drawing on George Stubbs’s ‘Kangaroo’ and ‘Dingo’ paintings. Artists, scientists and museum professionals considered the nature of eighteenth century exploration and how these histories can be experienced in a modern museum setting.

Here you can explore biographies of the presenters, abstracts and drawings by Scriberia which recorded each session.
