Running across King’s College London and Somerset House for three months from the 1st July, this lengthy event celebrates the 500th anniversary of Thomas Moore’s famous book Utopia.
This special celebration features a collection of new art works that have resulted from collaborations between artists, performers, architects, technologists and King’s College London academics.
It will include works by Le Gun Collective, author Philip Hoare and artist Caitlin Shepherd to name a few. There will be a wide range of media on display, such as films, immersive installations as well as loans from The Courtauld Gallery.
The purpose of the event is to get visitors to create a figurative map of what ‘Utopia’ really means in today’s society. But Paths to Utopia also seeks to question what Utopia is by examining Thomas Moore’s vision.
While the exhibition is free to visit, there are a number of the pieces that need to be pre-booked if you are planning on attending. There are also a number of events taking place over the summer, relating to the projects taking part in Paths to Utopia.
Paths to Utopia will appear at King’s College and Somerset House from the 1st July to the 2nd October. For more information and to book tickets to events visit: https://www.kcl.ac.uk/Cultural/whatson/eventrecords/160701-Paths-to-Utopia.aspx
