Adam Dant | The Budge Row Bibliotheque
Bloomberg SPACE | 50 Finsbury Square | London | EC2A 1HD
Entering its final week at Bloomberg SPACE, Adam Dant's specially commissioned solo exhibition 'The Budge Row Bibliotheque' encapsulates two millenia of the everyday life and times of Budge Row, the lost street of the City of London.
Responding to the unique position Bloomberg holds within its surroundings, the exhibition features a series of densely wrought drawings depicting interconnected historical anecdotes, inscriptions, cartographies, views and vistas, each telling a fascinating story of London life.
At the centre of the space sits a scale model of a green cabman's shelter, within which you can hear the artist recite archaeologist's dreams of London's lost streets and hidden past. This adds another, slightly uncanny, dimension to the cartographic romp through time that the rest of the exhibition presents.
Ends Sat 14 March | Open Mon - Sat, 11 am - 6pm
