History Is Now: 7 Artists Take On Britain

Tue 10 Feb 2015–Sun 26 Apr 2015

Seven artists take on the cultural history of the United Kingdom.

In the run-up to the 2015 General Election, History Is Now offers a radical new way of thinking about how we got to where we are today.

John Akomfrah, Simon Fujiwara, Roger Hiorns, Hannah Starkey, Richard Wentworth and Jane and Louise Wilson have each been invited to curate sections of the exhibition, looking at particular periods of cultural history.
