High Society Exhibition at the Wellcome Collection

Myself and fellow Collective designer @mattakempton went down to the Wellcome Collection last week to have a look through the High Society exhibition. 'Beginning with the idea that the alteration of consciousness is a universal human impulse, the exhibition looks at the use of drugs across the world, whether for recreational, experimental, religious or medical purposes.'

Looking around the exhibits the show has done a great job at presenting a balanced and varied view on the topic, at not point did it feel biased in any one direction. What it did very well, was give a good mix of exhibits which helped keep you fully engaged with the material. There were some great experiential exhibits like a Brion Gysin Dreammachine, and Mustafa Hulusi's four screen video projection titled 'Afyon'. The mild effects from these exhibits helped aid the appreciation of the other exhibits, specifically Keith Coventry's photo-lithographs and bronze sculptures, and Tracy Moffatt's photography.

If your keen to get down the exhibition runs until the 27th February, with late night openings on Thursdays.
