Victorian revivalism at the Guildhall Art Gallery

Date Posted: 24/07/2013

From the macabre to the quaint, the sensational to the surreal, Victoriana: The Art of Revival at the Guildhall Art Gallery in London from 7th September to 8th December, offers a major retrospective of Victorian revivalism in all its guises. 

Featuring design, film, photography, ceramics, taxidermy, furniture, textiles, fashion and fine art, the multi-media, multi-sensory exhibition explores the work of contemporary artists who have been inspired by the 19th century and offers a perspective into the on-going cultural legacy of our Victorian forebears.

Artists on display will include Yinka Shonibare, Grayson Perry, Paula Rego, Dan Hillier, Paul St. George, Rob Ryan, Kitty Valentine and Jake and Dinos Chapman, all of whom encapsulate the essence and diversity of Victorian Revivalism.
