A MOUSE IN THE HOUSE
Now Gallery is transforming into an immersive sculptural reading room for its latest exhibition The Mouse and His Child. Inspired by the home featured in Russell Hoban’s children’s novel and the exhibition’s namesake, The Mouse and His Child, the installation explores the human experience of fiction with a collection of children’s storybooks written by authors more commonly known for their adult fiction with the aim to unravel the perception of narratives and storytelling through the lens of the reader.
February 22-April 28. Now Gallery, The Gateway Pavilions, Peninsula Square, SE10 0SQ. Phone: 020 3770 2257.
