Date: 2 March –30 April 2018

Location: Bush House, Aldwych, London, WC2R 2LS

At the heart of our project is a major exhibition of classical and contemporary art in spring 2018, organised in collaboration with the Mougins Museum of Classical Art. This will be the inaugural exhibition in the newly renovated Bush House complex in central London: Bush House was acquired by King’s College London in 2014, and renovation of the central building was completed in September 2017.

Built in the 1920s, Bush House was home to the BBC World Service until 2012. This iconic neoclassical building, located on the Strand opposite the Courtauld Gallery, is set to become a cultural hub and popular visitor destination. This inaugural exhibition resonates with the building’s modernist-classical design, while also celebrating almost 200 years of classics and classical archaeology at King’s.

The exhibition is also timed to coincide with the annual meeting of the Association for Art History in April 2018 – Europe’s largest meeting of art historians, curators and teachers.

More information about the exhibition, and the forthcoming publication associated with it, will be posted here later in 2017.
