Popular exhibition – WONDER - is still available to see through Google Arts & Culture

WONDER has launched on Google Arts & Culture two months after the exhibition departed from the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum

Founded in 2011, the Google Cultural Institute is a non-for-profit initiative that partners with organisations to make the world’s cultural heritage accessible online. From Tate Britain to the Taj Mahal - Google Arts has captured hundreds of sites.

Google Arts & Culture makes the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum more accessible than ever before and allows the museum to preserve its history and grow audiences in a new way.

Inspired by the museum’s collection and the city of Coventry, 'Wonder' takes you beyond gallery walls with immersive experiences for visitors of all ages. From urban landscapes to re-imagined cartoon characters, a light pavilion and creatures brought to life by augmented reality, be prepared for unexpected and unimaginable wonders in our new Google Arts & Culture exhibition!

Presenting largely new works and commissions by seven artists from the West Midlands and UK, visitors are taken on a journey through space, time and media, to explore how art can excite the imagination whilst still being a document of the here and now.

'Wonder: Where Reality and Imaginary Collide' was a temporary exhibition at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum, 29 June - 15 September 2019.

The exhibition was curated by Dr Rachel Marsden and features work by Antonio Roberts, Ben Javens, Davy & Kristin McGuire, Edie Jo Murray, Julia Snowdin and Lucy McLauchlan.
