Join us for a special Frieze Week Private View of the Sir John Soane’s Museum -The extraordinary house and museum of the British architect Sir John Soane (1753-1837), whose collection included thousands of objects ranging from Ancient Egyptian antiquities and Roman sculpture to models of contemporary buildings. Our current exhibition, Langlands & Bell: Degrees of Truth, features a series of new works specially commissioned for the exhibition and works borrowed from public and private collections across the UK. These are installed across the Museum in dialogue with Sir John Soane’s collection of art, architecture and antiquities.
