Of Gods, Rainbows & Omissions is a new exhibition of works by the South African artist Athi-Patra Ruga.

In what will be his first major solo exhibition in the UK, Ruga has brought together three recent pieces to create a surreal and mythical utopia. The artist has used everything from drawings, sculpture and film, to photography and petit-point tapestry to immerse the visitors in a vibrant world filled with extraordinary characters -- a shimmering vision of a more humanist future.

Note: This exhibition will take place in the Terrace Rooms in the South Wing.
