The Museum of the White Horse was a personal response by artist Tania Kovats to our historic and ongoing fascination with the Uffington White Horse in Oxfordshire. This documentary follows Tania to White Horse Hill, Newbury Races and the Natural History Museum, where she speaks about the concepts behind the development of the Museum and her continuing engagement with drawing and landscape.

Between August and December 2007, the Museum Of the White Horse visited ten locations across southern England. This included White Horse Hill, the Uffington White Horse Show, Cheltenham and Newbury racecourses, Peer in Hackney, The Natural History Museum London, The University Museum Oxford, and various other regional and local museums. More than 5,000 visitors came through the Museum.

The Museum of the White Horse was commissioned by the Ruskin School of Drawing & Fine Art in collaboration with the School of Archaeology and Department for Continuing Education at the University of Oxford and with the support of Arts Council England, English Heritage, The Leverhulme Trust, The National Trust, Oxfordshire County Council, Oxford Exhibition Services, Tom Brown’s School Museum, Vale of White Horse District Council, Van Houten Fund and the White Horse Brewery.

Showing 27 September - 2 November 2008, Catch This, Longside Gallery, Yorkshire Sculpture Park, Wakefield WF4 4LG.
