Octagon 300

Art group Alice in Hackneyland celebrate the 300th anniversary of the Octagon Room with two large installations that play homage to the history of the gallery and the Baroque period in which it was built, as well as a selection of photographs, artworks and articles from the Borough Art Collection that help to bring its story to life. Visit the Ames room, and play with perspective and enjoy a pink masterpiece that draws reference to Queen Caroline’s 1729 visit to the Octagon Room. This exhibition is on from 13 October 2020 until 21 March 2021 at Orleans House Gallery.
