Pompeii and Herculaneum opens at BM

DHA were delighted to see the fantastic reviews that have greeted the opening of this major exhibition, with 5-star reviews in the Guardian, Independent and The Daily Telegraph. Designed by Land, with whom DHA worked on the successful The Book of the Dead at the same venue, the exhibition recreates a Roman Villa to look at the life in these seaside towns before their destruction. The lighting works to replicate the interior and exterior spaces, whilst lighting the objects and graphics to good effect.

Continuing their relationship with the BM, Pompeii and Herculaneum is the sixth show that DHA have lit in the Round Reading Room. It is described by Jonathan Jones as “one of the most momentous archeological exhibitions ever staged”.

Tickets for the exhibition can be purchased here
