Smoke and Mirrors (11 April 2019 - 15 September 2019)

Artefacts from the world of magic will include those from Derren Brown, Tommy Cooper, Paul Daniels, Debbie McGee and Harry Houdini.

Explore spirit photography, magic props, psychology experiments and more to see how magic works on – and in – your mind.

2019 sees the arrival of the 8th annual Winter Exhibition at Two Temple Place with John Ruskin: The Power of Seeing opening on 26th January and running until 22nd April 2019.

Artist, art critic, educator, social thinker and true polymath, John Ruskin (1819-1900) devoted his life to the pursuit of knowledge. Set against the spectacular backdrop of Two Temple Place, the exhibition celebrates the legacy and enduring relevance of Ruskin's ideas and vision, revealing how his influence is still felt today in current debates on arts, education, the economy and the environment. Fundamentally, Ruskin wanted to make Britain a better place to live. The exhibition will bring together over 190 paintings, drawings, daguerreotypes, metal work, and plaster casts to illustrate how Ruskin’s attitude to aesthetic beauty shaped his radical views on culture and society.
