The Department of Repair

We don't do a lot of mending in the modern world. If the job needs anything more than a tube of superglue then we're off to Argos to buy a new one instead. This exhibition will explore the identity and potential of 'repair' through a website, publication and workshops with visiting designers and makers (Jan 12-30) who will demonstrate and teach repair skills.

Sherlock Holmes

Sherlock Holmes is one of the most famous Londoners ever. This exhibition at the Museum of London seeks to find out who Holmes is, and why Arthur Conan Doyle's late-Victorian detective endures to this day. Exhibits will include a nineteenth-century portrait of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, original Holmes manuscripts and the very coat and dressing gown worn by Benedict Cumberbatch in the BBC's 'Sherlock'. Many of the paintings, drawings, illustrations and photographs will reveal details of Victorian London, giving a glimpse of the famous landmarks and cultural climate which inspired Conan Doyle's creations.
