Lost Heads & Hobgoblins: The Museum of Ridiculously Interesting Things Pop-Up takes a look at strange things in The Dowse Collection… or perhaps it asks you to look at things in The Dowse Collection strangely?

Exploring The Department of Lost and Found Heads, The Cabinet of Things That Are (Probably) A Little Bit Magical and The Directory of Dark and Mysterious Places, Lost Heads & Hobgoblins exhibition takes us on a wild ride through the curious, fascinating and at times, outright strange objects in The Dowse Collection.

This curious romp through the collection was inspired by The Museum of Ridiculously Interesting Things, an online project by Dr Chelsea Nichols. Recently appointed as Senior Curator at The Dowse, Nichols explores our collection through that unusual lens – bringing her imaginary museum into the real world for the first time.

Leaving the collection doors open for the mysterious hands, heads and melting ice-cream cones to sneak out from their shelves, Lost Heads & Hobgoblins plays with the way museums can tickle a weird part of your brain, introducing a witty, personal way of looking at art.
