Exhibition floor talk: Botanica - curiosity, creativity and consumption.

Hear from Curator Kate Davies as we explore the Botanica exhibition, its themes and items from the QVMAG's diverse collection in this floor talk.


The unique environments of flora – land and sea – influence life in countless ways: from food and medicines to visual art and design.

Botanica delights in the wonders of the plant world, illustrated through QVMAG's diverse collections.

Explore the intersection between natural science, social history and create practice to discover, devour, and devise these fascinating patterns of nature. Be inspired by original plant specimens, curious objects, and marvellous artworks.

Botanica is a portal into botany as science, industry and art. It captures the imagination through its beauty, its history, and its extraordinary properties as humans strive to document and celebrate flora's beauty and impact.
