So we’re going head first down the rabbit hole to Wonderland for all kinds of curious events:

      Event: Defining Beauty: the Body in Ancient Greek Art

      Location: British Museum, WC1

      The British Museum is showcasing its magnificent Ancient Greek art collection this spring with its blockbuster exhibition, Defining Beauty: The Body in Ancient Greek Art.

      With around 150 artworks from the museum’s own collection and beyond, the exhibition shows how the Greeks revolutionised art in the 5th century BC, with their representation of the human form in a more naturalistic way.
