The Cult of Beauty – Wellcome Collection

Opening this British Beauty Week, the Wellcome Collection’s new major new exhibition explores notions of beauty across time and cultures. Featuring over 200 items, including historical objects, artworks, films and new commissions, we consider the influence of morality, status, health, age, race and gender on the evolution of ideas about beauty.

The exhibition invites you to question established norms and reflect on more inclusive definitions of beauty.

The exhibition is free and open to the public 26 October 2023 – 28 April 2024.

This event will have British Sign Language interpretation and live automated speech-to-text transcription. Guide dogs are always welcome.
