Peace, Love & World War: the Denmans, Empire and Australia, 1910-1917

  • 3 July — 25 September 2017 *on now

Thomas, Lord Denman, and his wife, the irrepressible Gertrude Denman ('Trudie'), resided in Australia from July 1911 to May 1914. Through manuscripts, books, film and objects, this exhibition tells the story of this imposing power couple and their circle, intertwining it with the broader narrative of early 20th century Australia and its changing relationship with the UK.
First shown at Canberra Museum and Gallery in 2016, the exhibition includes material from many of Australia’s leading public institutions, including the National Library of Australia, the National Museum of Australia and the National Film and Sound Archive of Australia, as well as items from private collections and from King's College London’s own library and archive collections. Most of the exhibits have never been displayed in the UK before.
