Disappear Here

On perspective and other kinds of space

2 May to 7 October 2018

From the Renaissance to the present day, perspective has been a constant in architectural writing and illustration. This exhibition explores how perspective spans truth and illusion, linking the disciplines of art, architecture and mathematics.

Disappear Here is a new commission by Sam Jacob Studio which leads the visitor through deceptive murals, cunning architectural structures and a newly commissioned film to trace the lineage of perspective across centuries and technologies.
