The Shape of Time is an exhibition of remarkable artworks dating from 1800 to the present day. Borrowed from some of the most important museums and private collections across the world, they have been placed within the rooms of our Picture Gallery in dialogue with our own historical objects and artists, as stepping stones to lead us from the point at which our own collections end to the point at which we stand today. Visitors are invited to look simultaneously backwards and forwards between objects made many centuries years apart, either of which has the potential to alter our experience of the other.
