For over a thousand years the ancient Egyptian cities of Thonis-Heracleion and Canopus lay hidden under the Mediterranean seabed at the mouth of the Nile, only known through Greek myths and historical Egyptian decrees.
Once busy cosmopolitan port cities built on islands in the Nile Delta, the cities disappeared under the waves centuries ago, becoming completely submerged by the 8th century AD.
“In order for something to be ‘found’, it has to have, at some point in its history, been ‘lost.’” So says Cornelia Parker, the artist curator of a contemporary art exhibition Found at the Foundling Museum in Bloomsbury.
Parker invited 60 contemporary artists to contribute either a new piece of work on the subject or an object of some significance to them that they had found and kept.
Britain as seen from a foreigner’s perspective. This intriguing exhibition covers life in Britain from the 1930s on, from King George VI’s coronation to images of the London Underground, with pictures by Henri Cartier-Bresson, Robert Frank and Bruce Gilden among others, chosen by the photographer Martin Parr. Catch it before it goes — www.barbican.org.uk/strangeandfamiliar at the Barbican Art Gallery, EC2 until June 19.
The Dulwich Picture Gallery is hosting the first retrospective of early 20th-century modernist artist Winifred Knights, reuniting her paintings for the first time.
Winifred Knights’s most famous picture, The Deluge, was painted in 1920 when she was just 21 years old, and it won the Prix de Rome, despite being submitted unfinished. The painting of a biblical scene of panic as women flee The Flood usually hangs in Tate Britain, although it has been lent to the Dulwich Art Gallery for this exhibition. It is often mistaken for a Stanley Spencer.
Custard pies and splurge guns at the ready as Sir Alan Parker’s gangster musical Bugsy Malone is back on the London stage.
The children’s musical set in prohibition-era New York is play-acting at its best, with a young gangster cast that thrills with the fun of its make-believe warfare.
Based on the 1976 film that starred a very young Jodie Foster, the musical tells how penniless boxing promoter Bugsy falls for the nightclub singer Blousey Brown, who performs at mafia boss Fat Sam’s Grand Slam speakeasy.
