These specimens will spill into the Museum and Hagley Park as part of Neil Pardington’s photographic project The Order of Things.

Neil’s confronting photographs of creatures from museum collections are displayed in the Bird Hall on Level 3 and on billboards in Hagley Park.

The Order of Things is part of SCAPE’s Public Art Season 2019, and is a collaboration between SCAPE and the Museum.
