New Exhibition Has "Timely" Opening
As though in acknowledgement of recent "difficulties" - though the event has been three years in the planning - The Thrupiece Museum of Science and Technology, Tincleton has announced the opening of its new "Professor Thrupiece The Modernist" Exhibition. Following on from the highly successful "Treasure from the Thrupiece Collection" held last year, the current event will see an all new collection including items never before seen by the public. Ironically one of the central exhibits will be items relating to the development of the thrupiecediet (including an assortment of fluffs used in the very first experiments): work which was to prove instrumental in the articulation of the Thrupiece Tables.
Museum Curator Dusty Kranies was quick to refute any suggestion that the Exhibition was "little more than propaganda" in the fight against Danish scientist Lars Resorte arguing instead that it was part of a long-determined plan to bring Professor Thrupiece's work to a wider audience and to emphasise his influence as a radically progressive influence. "Professor Thrupiece was an out and out modernist: he believed in flat roofs, bakelite and Instant Whip", she noted, adding that "he had himself installed bunsen burner-based central heating into his laboratories at the Institute for Advanced Research Toormakeady (Tuar Mhic Éadaigh) in 2004".
Highlights of the exhibition include a collection of Futurist-school nasal clippers (Milan 1943) purchased by Professor Thrupiece in 1993 as well as equipment used in the development of the the thrupiecediet in Cambridge in the mid 1960s.
In order to ensure that the Exhibition is seen by the widest audience, admission is £18 per head which doubles only on Saturdays and Sundays. The Exhibition is open (by prior appointment) between 10am and 12.30pm.
The Exhibition aims to foster a wider appreciation of Professor Thrupiece's work and comes at a "timely" moment in the propaganda war over the Professor's intellectual legacy.
