Admission free

From taxidermy and microscopy to forgotten lives and colonial histories, this exhibition explores how leading contemporary artists have invoked the Victorians in their work. By examining how artists creatively and critically respond to the Victorian era, the exhibition asks why its cultural, ethical and aesthetic legacies still matter today. Through the display of work by artists including Dorothy Cross, Mark Dion, Tessa Farmer, Sally Mann, Ingrid Pollard and Yinka Shonibare, alongside images by 19th-century practitioners like John James Audubon and Julia Margaret Cameron, the exhibition invites viewers to rediscover the Victorians through contemporary paintings, sculptures and photographs that reimag(in)e them in 'the present'.
