The Society of Antiquaries of London celebrates its 150th anniversary of moving to Burlington House with an exhibition during London Art Week. The event features 20 new artworks created by Adam Dant and Dan Llywelyn Hall, inspired by items from the Society’s historic collection.

The majority of the artwork will be sold in an online auction from 1 June until 5 July. Eight further works will exclusively be sold during a gala auction together with some etchings from the Society of Antiquaries.

Cerys Matthews MBE, singer, songwriter, author, and broadcaster will host a pre-exhibition Q&A opening event with Adam and Dan at 6pm on Monday 3 June in the Society’s Meeting Room.

The live auction of Adam and Dan’s artworks will take place at 6pm on Thursday 4 July with guest auctioneer Matthew Haley, Managing Director of Bonhams Knightsbridge saleroom.

Funds raised from this exciting auction will support the cataloguing and digitisation of the Society’s collection of around 25,000 eighteenth and nineteenth-century prints and drawings.

Display details: Display open to the public Friday 28 June, 12pm – 3.30pm, Monday 1 July – Friday 5 July, 10am – 4pm. Free, no booking required.
