This series of discussions with expert speakers has been organised by the Discovery Gallery in partnership with the University of Aberdeen.

The House of Annie Lennox celebrates one of the world's most renowned performers and pays tribute to the creativity, style and passion for life of the Aberdeen-born artist. On display are costumes and accessories worn by Lennox together with photographs, personal treasures and awards, ephemera from the political campaigns she has championed, music videos and a specially commissioned video of Lennox in conversation.

Aberdeen Art Gallery is the first Scottish venue to host the show and features exclusive new content curated by Annie Lennox in partnership with gallery staff including memorabilia from her musical beginnings in the city, family photographs and a piece specially written by her for the exhibition.

The exhibition runs until Saturday 29 September 2012.
