SeaCity Museum: exhibition researcher, Titanic: the Legend

 

SeaCity Book wallSouthampton’s SeaCity Museum explores the lives of the people of the city and their relationship with the sea. Titanic: the Legend was the first special exhibition at the museum looking at the public’s continued  fascination with the Titanic

The temporary exhibition explores this relationship through:

  • the literature, films and merchandise that were and continue to be produced
  • the myths and legends that surround the building and sinking of the Titanic
  • the salvage of the site
  • and the societies, clubs, events and activities that continue to be popular.
As part of the exhibition team I liaised with museum staff to research and source objects that reflected the wide diversity of items available that depict and celebrate The Titanic, and for books that illustrated the range of subjects covered by the literature.
