victoriana

there's a wonderful review here of last night's private view of the victoriana, the art of revival exhibition that i am a part of at the guildhall art gallery here:

http://deathdrawing.com/2013/09/06/victoriana-the-art-of-revival-preview-review/ 

it's such an exciting, beautifully curated and intelligent look at twenty-eight contemporary artists inspired by the 19th century.  lots of press so far - radio 4, the guardian, time out etc.  i can't recommend it highly enough!

"from the macabre to the quaint, the sensational to the surreal, ‘victoriana: the art of revival’ is the first ever exhibition in the uk to offer a major examination of victorian revivalism in all its forms.

featuring graphic design, film, photography, ceramics, taxidermy, furniture, textiles and fine art, this multi-media show explores work inspired by the 19th century and created over the last twenty years, highlighting the on-going influence of the victorian age"
