Monthly late opening at the London Mithraeum for the Roman temple, and the ground floor art exhibition

--

Taking inspiration from Bloomberg’s location in the City of London, Dant’s epic sepia ink drawing encapsulates 2,000 years of the everyday life and times of Budge Row, the famous once-lost thoroughfare now reinstated as Bloomberg Arcade.

Dant’s detailed maps and drawings depict real places using traditional drawing systems, but when studied reveal themselves to be fashioned from a seemingly random stack of historical documents, ephemera, archaeological evidence and personal effects.

Often unseen relationships between institutions and people, such as those that exist between the City of London and its diverse population, have long been the subject matter of Dant’s studies. Tracing a narrative construction of space, time and place through its past and current inhabitants, the viewer is invited to explore and discover their own story of the place in the picture.
