Dorothée Pullinger Exhibition

Katarzyna Kosmala (Curator), Judith Hewitt (Producer)

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition


The exhbition tells the story of trailblazing car engineer Dorothée Pullinger - the focus of a fascinating new exhibition, brought together by the collaboration between the University of the West of Scotland (UWS) and The Devil’s Porridge Museum.

Pullinger, one of Dumfries and Galloway’s most famous daughters, lived a fascinating life, working in munitions during World War One, then going on to oversee the construction of the Galloway car at Tongland near Kirkcudbright.
Key components of the exhibition, including a series of banners reflecting the spirit of the Suffragette movement and women’s activists of the early 20th Century, were the culmination of a UWS research project, led by Professor Katarzyna Kosmala.
The exhbition content is based on archival research that brings Pullinger’s story to life with a collection of artefacts gathered from her life-long career – and hopes to inspire engineers of the future.

The exhbition opened on 26 April 2021 and will be on public vieweing until 30 September 2021.
