KISS OF DEATH: DEATH AND MOURNING IN THE VICTORIAN ERA

From 28 Jan 2017 To 18 Jun 2017

This exhibition is inspired by the contemporary artwork, 'Kiss of Death' by Jo Gordon, which is an extreme version of a Victorian mourning bonnet.

The Victorians are noted for the extravagant ways in which they celebrated death. Queen Victoria was in mourning for Prince Albert from his death in 1861 until her death in 1901, greatly influencing the traditions of the time. The exhibition will explore death in the 1800s through mourning and burial traditions, belief and superstition.

Opening Days and Times:

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday

Monday - Saturday 10am-5pm
Sunday 12noon - 3pm
