The Late Shows: Thirteen

  • 16 May 2015 7-11pm

Globe Gallery is delighted to present George Chakravathi’s exhibition 'Thirteen' in Globe’s new venue on the ground floor of Commercial Union House. Commissioned by the Royal Shakespeare Company, the works on show portray thirteen of Shakespeare’s tragic characters all of whom meet their ends through suicide. Created as a series of powerful self-portraits embedded in light boxes, Chakravarthi assumes the roles of some of Shakespeare’s most celebrated yet doomed characters: Brutus, Cassius, Eros, Goneril, Mark Antony, Othello, Timon, Lady Macbeth, Portia, Ophelia, Cleopatra, Juliet and Romeo. We will also have a tree on which you can leave messages for a loved one, an opportunity to win an EGO print and a chance to win one of Claire Davies’ handmade dolls.
