Curator Tour: Show Your Metal

Millennium Gallery

Take a tour of our latest exhibition, Show Your Metal, with curator Emma Paragreen. 


Show Your Metal showcases over 100 objects drawn from Sheffield’s Designated Metalwork Collection, celebrating the pioneering advances that earned the city a global reputation. 


In this tour, our Curator of Metalwork and Industry, Emma Paragreen, will explain how she approached curating the exhibition alongside Exhibitions & Displays Curator, Katie Irwin. She’ll show you highlights from the city’s Metalwork Collection, as well as a range of contemporary artworks that demonstrate the spectacle of metal in the hands of artists. 


These tours form part of the programme of events complementing the exhibition Show Your Metal at the Millennium Gallery on 13 June  – 29 September 2024.
