Seeing in a Wider Sense

Both artists and anthropologists reveal aspects of the world and human interaction through their work. They help us to understand and see differently. This exhibition brings together Fife based artists Will Maclean and Marian Leven with social anthropologists Stephanie Bunn and Peter Gow from the University of St Andrews. Artwork and artefacts from different cultures provide a starting point for dialogue between disciplines.
