Eve and the Mirror by John JohnstoneThis exhibition features stunning works from the University of Dundee’s Fine Art Collections inspired by our darkest dreams and nightmares. Including surreal images that will make your imagination run wild, prepare for a fantastical experience that will make your strangest visions come to life! Take a journey through bizarre landscapes, and meet some of our most uncanny characters. Come along to see some of the weirdest artworks in our collections, including works by Arthur Rackham, Graeme Todd, Tommy Crooks, Alan Michael, Derrick Guild and Edward Summerton.

Each of the artworks included in the exhibition can be interpreted in many ways, and we want you to tell us your thoughts about the pictures that most inspire you. Please use the cards provided in the gallery to describe what you see in the pictures, and have the chance to see your thoughts displayed in the exhibition!

On Thursday 5 December at 1pm, join the exhibition’s curators, Matthew Jarron and Hope Roberts, for an informal guided tour.
