Victorians Decoded: Art and Telegraphy celebrated the 150th anniversary of the first successful communications cable laid across the Atlantic Ocean, connecting Europe with America. A collaboration between Guildhall Art Gallery, King's College London, The Courtauld Institute of Art and the Institute of Making at University College London, the exhibition used iconic Victorian paintings and early telegraphic objects to explore how cable telegraphy transformed people's understanding of time, space and speed of communication.

Victorians Decoded: Art and Telegraphy, Guildhall Art Gallery, City of London, 20 September 2016 - 22 January 2017.
