ef3ad2cf87fd6f07900eb52210436b9bThe Victorian Era is such a strong landmark in literature, politics, morality and aesthetics so it come as no real surprise that an exhibition featuring graphic design, film, photography, ceramics, taxidermy, furniture, textiles and fine art with multi-media show that explores work inspired by the 19th century and created over the last 20 years, highlighting the ongoing influence of the Victorian age.

‘Victoriana: The Art of Revival’ brings together 28 major contemporary artists who encapsulate the many forms and motivations of modern takes on Victorian style. These include Yinka Shonibare, Grayson Perry, Paula Rego, Dan Hillier, Paul St. George, Rob Ryan, Kitty Valentine and Jake and Dinos Chapman.

I have to say it looks interesting…so hopefully I will see you there!!
