Pictures of Power will draw on Derby Museums’ collections to consider the energy stories hidden inside everyday objects and actions. Looking at objects made of different materials from around the world, the exhibition will explore the way things are made, who makes them and the cost to the planet of their production and use. From Royal umbrellas to radium spectacles, Pictures of Power will use incredible objects to tell these stories. It is being run alongside Energetic, information about which can be found here.
Pictures of Power forms part of the Stories of Change project, which aims to stimulate lively conversations about energy by looking in a fresh way at its past, present and future.
