The MERL is 70 | 51 Voices | 51 Objects
To mark our 70th year, we will be exploring objects connected to 1951, the year the Museum was established.
We will be working with artists and writers from many different communities and backgrounds to link these items to the priorities and passions of the past, present, and future.
Throughout 2021, an exciting array of Voices will be mapped to 51 fascinating objects, enabling reflection on mid-century ideas. By working with different people and communities, collections will be re-imagined with surprising and perhaps challenging responses.
Below, find out more about 51 Voices by clicking the top three images, or explore the new objects and Voices that we will be revealing here week by week and month by month from January to December 2021.
