Disappear Here: Kent Rawlinson in conversation with Sam Jacob

Bringing together material from the RIBA and Drawing Matter collections, the exhibition Disappear Here (RIBA, 2 May – 7 Oct 2018) explores the history, application and implications of perspective, how it spans truth and illusion, linking the disciplines of art, architecture and mathematics. In this podcast series, curator and designer Sam Jacob discusses with various guests the exhibition’s material and themes.

The first episode sees Sam joined by Kent Rawlinson, Head of Collections at RIBA, to discuss the process of research and curation, and the intentions behind the exhibition.
