Felicity and I are looking forward to welcoming everyone to In(ter)ventions at the British Museum tomorrow. There are just a couple of things left to announce ahead of this. Firstly, Arthur MacGregor (author of Curiosity and Enlightenment: Collectors and Collections from the Sixteenth to the Nineteenth Century (2007); Sir Hans Sloane: Founding Father of the British Museum (1994); and editor of the Journal of the History of Collections) will be giving a keynote entitled ‘New Meanings from New Contexts: Afterlife and Reinterpretation in the Museum Collection’. He will be discussing how objects acquire new layers of meaning as they move from collection to collection.
