Ways of Seeing: Buildings and Monuments

Ways of Seeing: Buildings and Monuments

Presented by Birmingham Museum of Art at Birmingham Museum of Art

Ways of Seeing: Buildings and Monuments is an exhibition of nearly sixty objects from the Museum’s collection that will draw visitors’ attention to these unexamined spaces through the work of artists, designers, and architects. This exhibition brings together rarely seen works from storage and objects from across the Museum’s collection to consider how artists explore architecture and the built environment.

The exhibition reveals the longstanding, close relationship between artists and architects, and  displays the work of the many creators who work between these professions. It also looks at representations of home, buildings encountered in daily life, and even building materials to encourage visitors to view Birmingham with new eyes. Finally, it asks visitors to consider how monuments are seen by and impact fellow Birminghamians.
