Imitate Modern and The Tax Collection are pleased to present our next collaborative event “‘Romeo, Romeo! Drop me a Pin.”
Since the discovery of the remains from the Curtain theatre, just behind the gallery space of Imitate Modern, archeologists have been working on the preservation of this historical place. The building development site belongs to Imitate Moderns’ collaborator Galliard Homes and was an absolutely breathtaking moment! 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 will once again curate for an unforgettable art exhibition– a contemporary twist on Shakespeare’s most renowned plays. Curated by The Tax Collection and Imitate Modern, the newly commissioned works for this historical exhibition will be on display at Imitate Modern’s gallery space in the heart of Shoreditch.
Founded in 2012 Imitate Modern is a contemporary London art gallery with a difference, edgy and friendly, intimate yet globally recognised. Imitate Modern’s first gallery is at 19 Shepherd Market in Mayfair, now the gallery has opened their second brand at The Stage development in Shoreditch.
