Horniman Conservatory

The Robot Zoo

Temporary Exhibition Space

How do chameleons change colour? What makes grasshoppers leap so high? How do bats see at night? Enter the fascinating world of the Robot Zoo and discover the mechanisms that give animals their amazing abilities.

This family-friendly exhibition features larger-than-life animals that have been innovatively recreated using a variety of familiar machine parts and gadgets to reveal how their real life counterparts see, eat, hunt and hide. Interactive exhibits also give you the chance to try jet-propelled squid racing, shoot a chameleon’s ‘tongue-gun’ and even design your own ‘mutant’ robot creature.

The Robot Zoo returns to the Horniman for the first time since its highly successful UK debut in 2009.

Sargent: The Watercolours

21st June 2017 - 8th October 2017

The first UK show in nearly 100 years devoted to watercolours by the Anglo-American artist, John Singer Sargent (1856-1925).

Renowned as the portraitist of his generation, Sargent also devoted time to developing his talent in watercolour, undertaking several painting expeditions to Europe in the early twentieth century. Free from the constraints of his studio he was able to take inspiration from the places he visited – from the streams and glacial moraines in The Alps to the renaissance and baroque architecture he explored in Venice. Working en plein air, Sargent developed a distinctive way of seeing and composing, his subjects often appearing fragmented and disorienting – an expression of his personal, modern aesthetic.

Garden Museum

Eileen Hogan

Artist-not-in-residence

May-September 2017

Eileen Hogan was appointed the Garden Museum’s artist-in-residence just as the Museum closed for a major Heritage Lottery funded Redevelopment Project.

In Spring 2017, an exhibition of Hogan’s works will coincide with the launch of the newly redeveloped and extended Museum.

Hogan’s response to the challenge of being an artist definitely ‘not-in-residence’ was to ask ninety people to nominate a green space in London along with a description of why it was significant to them.

The Garden Musem has now reopened after major refurbishment and is accepting bookings for private events.
