    Data Dating

    What does it mean to love in the Internet age? How are digital interfaces reshaping our personal relationships? What do new technologies imply for the future of the romantic sphere? How do screens affect our sexual intimacy? Are the new means of connection shifting the old paradigms of adult life?

    The advent of the Internet and smartphones has brought about a split in the romantic lives of millions of people, who now inhabit both the real world and their very own “phone world”. In terms of romance and sexual intimacy, these phenomena have generated new complexities that we are still trying to figure out.

    By bringing together the work of several international artists, the exhibition Data Dating attempts to explore new directions in modern romance: new forms of intimate communication, the process of commodification of love through online dating services and hookup applications, unprecedented meeting and mating behaviors, the renegotiation of sexual identities, and changing erotic mores and taboos.

    Data Dating is curated by Valentina Peri in partnership with Galerie Charlot Paris.

    Romeo and Juliet

    Passions collide. And the world changes in an instant.

    Experience Shakespeare’s tale of love and violence taken to the edge of the city, where the wildness of the heart can’t be contained.

    A small cast of multi-roling actors bring Shakespeare’s language to life through ensemble movement, lyrical flows and contemporary sounds; up close, intense, and in the round.

    Ideally suited to Years 9, 10 and 11 (ages 13 – 16), this 90-minute abridged version of the play uses only Shakespeare’s language, combined with a present-day setting. Clear storytelling makes it accessible for students at any stage of studying the text in class.

    The Lost Dress of Elizabeth I

    The Bacton Altar Cloth at Hampton Court Palace

    The only surviving example of Elizabeth I's dresses

    Following new research and conservation, Historic Royal Palaces Curators believe that the Bacton Altar Cloth once formed part of a dress worn by Elizabeth herself.

    The high-status silver chamblet silk, professional embroidery including gold and silver thread, and distinct evidence of pattern cutting all suggest that the item was once an item of elite court dress. Tudor law meant that only the very highest levels of nobility and royalty were allowed to wear dress that contained gold and silver.

    New research supports the theory that this was intended for the highest level of customer and that it is an item of dress from Elizabeth's own wardrobe, making it the only known surviving example of Elizabeth I's clothing.

    Turner and the Thames: Five Paintings exhibition

    Turner’s House Trust are thrilled to announce their first exhibition of J.M.W. Turner’s original oil paintings in the house he designed for himself. The exhibition will open on January 10th, 2020, thanks to a generous loan from Tate. 

    Turner and the Thames: Five Paintings, will feature rare oil sketches, seldom seen by the public, and run until March 29th at Sandycombe Lodge, 40 Sandycoombe Road, St Margarets, Twickenham TW1 2LR.

    The works have been chosen for their depictions of scenes close to his house near the river, and feature riparian landscapes from Isleworth to Windsor.

    The Thames enticed Turner to buy a plot of land in Twickenham on which to build a retreat for him and his father in the 1800s and he designed the villa so that he could glimpse the river from his bedroom window. Turner spent a lot of time on the Thames both working and fishing, keeping his catch in two ponds in what was then a large, country garden.

    The exhibition is included in the price of general admission to the house..

    World War One Exhbition

    This new exhibition comemorates the end of the First World War and the Returning Soldier.  The Museum has a library of recordings for use on reproducing pianos, and a collection of instruments that were at the height of popularity in the1910s and 1920s.  The music that emerged from the war is sometimes upbeat and incongruous with the tragedy of the period, while other music seeks to evoke the trauma of the front-line.  The exhibition features a local history perspective, a display of music from our collection, and recordings of music from the era played on our instruments.

    Admission to the exhibition is free
