Visit Langlands & Bell: Degrees of Truth Online TOP

The Museum's current exhibition, Langlands & Bell: Degrees of Truth, has been re-created as an online exhibition. View a series of online galleries recreating the exhibition, with artworks spanning four decades spread across the floors of the Museum. Ranging from film, video and digital to sculpture, installation and print work, Langlands & Bell’s work has explored the complex web of relationships linking people and architecture and the coded systems of communication and exchange we use to negotiate a fast changing technological world.

We plan to extend the exhibition when the Museum reopens to the public.
