The exhibition traverses discussions on the nature of museums, post colonialism, war, loss and protest, and seeks to offer a collective understanding of the history of the gallery and the times in which we live.
The title of the exhibition refers to Richard Glynn Vivian’s book entitled Ex tenebris lux! – Out of Darkness, light! A book of poetry written by Glynn in aid of the global miner’s mission he founded.
