Imitate Modern | September 2019
Imitate Modern and The Tax Collection are pleased to present our next collaborative event ‘Romeo, Romeo! Wherefore art thou Romeo?’ Drop me a Pin.’ Since the discovery of the remains from William Shakespeare’s original Curtain theatre, just behind the gallery space of Imitate Modern, archeologists have been working on the preservation of the historical landmark. The theatre was home to some of William Shakespeare’s most famous plays, "Romeo & Juliet" and "Hamlet", were performed in this theatre over 400 years ago.
To celebrate the greatest writer in the English language and the world's greatest dramatist, Imitate Modern and The Tax Collection have curated an unforgettable art exhibition– a contemporary twist on Shakespeare’s most renowned plays. Curated by The Tax Collection and Creative Director of Imitate Modern Caroline Argirakos, the newly commissioned works for this historical exhibition will be on display at Imitate Modern's gallery space in the heart of Shoreditch London.
