from saturday 7 september to sunday 8 december.

"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"
