Join our in-gallery tour to find out more about how the Museum is working with eco-activist artists who design contemporary featherwork art in South America, as well as learning about the conservation of these fragile objects as part of our 'Whats in Our Drawers?' project.

The tours will be led by members of the museum research team, together with conservation staff and will focus on telling the art and conservation histories of featherwork objects in the collections.

Part of a series of activities at the Pitt Rivers Museum for the Art History Festival (19-26 September 2022) with the Association for Art History.
