Secret Intelligence exhibition guide
In a world of 24/7 news bulletins and social media channels, we have become familiar with the daily uncovering of secrets, both public and private. In display cases, story boards and other digitised resources, this exhibition shows how the past can also yield up its secrets, and illustrates how evidence about historic events survives through surprising voices and in curious contexts. Sometimes the documents were meant to remain secret. Records of government officers reveal the activities of early spies, and private correspondence provides frank and confidential views on scandals from previous centuries. In other cases, hidden value is discovered as books and manuscripts reveal unexpected layers of meaning.
At the Weston Gallery, Lakeside Arts Centre, University Park from Friday 20 September until Sunday 5 January 2014.
