A LIFE-SIZE sculpture of a rhino and a time-travelling eco lab form part of UnNatural History – one of the first major exhibitions launching Coventry UK City of Culture 2021 this May.

Curated by art and environment organisation Invisible Dust, this major new exhibition will run from May 28 until August 22 in newly refurbished contemporary galleries at the Herbert Art Gallery & Museum in Coventry.

Alice Sharp, artistic director at Invisible Dust, said: “I am thrilled UnNatural History will be one of the first exhibitions for Coventry UK City of Culture 2021.

“The artists consider the past and future of the deeply felt relationship between art and science of the great collections of natural history. This relationship is sometimes speculative, sometimes informative.

“UnNatural History artists uncover both a greater understanding of ecology and biodiversity, and encourage our ability to act on the climate crisis.”
