The exhibition Curiosity, Art & the Pleasures of Knowing, curated by novelist Brian Dillon, zooms in on ‘curiosity’ as the motor which spurs us on to acquire knowledge, but also as a guilty desire for the pleasures of new and strange things. Taking as its starting point the rich tradition of the 17th century curiosity cabinet, where art and natural curiosities were displayed, the show explores how the search for the wondrous and bizarre still plays a role in contemporary art. The exhibition was organized in cooperation with Hayward Gallery and Cabinet Magazine. On show at de Appel arts centre from 27 JUNE– 14 SEPT 2014
