One day in the City

  • Part I (UCL Art Museum & South Cloisters) 15 June - 22 August

This exhibition explores the various everyday experiences of life in London over the centuries, as presented to us through architecture, art and literature. It will feature rare items from UCL's art and book collections, including selections from Hogarth's series Industry and Idleness (1747). Part of the UCL Festival of London and Literature the exhibition runs concurrently with a display in the South Cloisters. The exhibition is organised by the Department of English with UCL Art Museum, in partnership with the Bartlett School of Architecture, and is generously supported by UCL Grand Challenges: Sustainable Cities. Free admission.

The exhibitions open on 15 June as part of the UCL Festival of London and Literature: One Day in the City.
