Dr Erin McKellar, Curator of Space Popular: The Portal Galleries, leads an engaging and insightful tour of our multidimensional exhibition.

The exhibition responds to the virtuality of Sir John Soane’s Museum by focusing on ‘the portal’: a door or threshold that grants entrance into another environment, whether physical or virtual. The desire to travel virtually across time, space and realms has been a recurring theme in the collective imagination – one that many have explored through fictional narratives. 

Erin will guide you through the magic and mechanics of virtual travel in an exhibition that bridges the technologies of Soane’s time and ours. The exhibition includes drawings by Space Popular juxtaposed with drawings from Soane's office, a new spatial film experienced through VT headsets, and a large new handcrafted ‘portal table’ which offers a three-dimensional timeline of fictional portals and is also the stage for a second spatial film.

This event is free to attend, but pre-booking is essential. Register here, via our Shop website.
