Last days of this great exhibition dedicated to UK photographer Martin Parr’s wonderful photography collection plus his vast collection of objects. It features not only his extraordinary collection of photography books and prints by British and international photographers, but also large numbers of objects and curiosities closely reflecting political and social events (Saddam Hussein watches, Osama Bin Laden toilet paper and Margaret Thatcher teapots, plus the biggest packet of potato crisps ever sold!); ie the absurdity and vacuity of our consumer society. There’s some of his own work upstairs too (his latest series: ‘Luxury’, ‘Small World’, and ‘The Guardian Cities Project’). Until 27 Sep.
