The Classical Now

King's College London
The Arcade at Bush House and Inigo Rooms, WC2B 4PJ
Somerset House East Wing, King's College London, WC2R 2LS

2nd March — 28 April 2018

By pairing modern and contemporary art with classical antiquities, this exhibition explores the ways in which Graeco-Roman art has captured and permeated today’s imagination. Demonstrating a crucially modern mode of classicism, Le Brun presents two sculptures and a painting, each a product of his engagement with the myth, history and poetry of ancient Greece and Rome. This major exhibition is staged across two spaces, the newly renovated Arcade of Bush House, and the Inigo Rooms in Somerset House East Wing where Le Brun’s work can be found.

The Classical Now is accompanied by a catalogue, published in February 2018. More information about the exhibition, and the research project from which it derives, can be found here.
