‘A Sense of Wonder’

The Biggest Exhibitions To See In London: Winter 2022



Discover a magical and playful world inhabited by a series of rusty robots at Pitzhanger.

Within utopian and dystopian landscapes, encounter the robots as they experience the best of human emotions: wonder, kindness, empathy, friendship, and love.

Experience this audio-visual exhibition’s otherworldly soundscape, which spans 100 years of music, all interspersed with birdsong in a garden-like setting.

A Sense of Wonder‘ is gathered from the digital paintbrush of Matt Dixon, who created his first robot character as part of the Transmissions series in 2006. He has been exploring this preternatural world ever since, including the design of the O2 robot mascot Bubl. Be among the first to play the beta version of his new robot video game ahead of its international launch.

‘A Sense of Wonder’: The Curious Robot World of Matt Dixon is curated by Rob Dickins CBE.

The exhibition is supported by The Deborah Loeb Brice Donor Advised Fund.

Included in the ticket

  • Tickets provide entry to both Pitzhanger Manor and the exhibition in Pitzhanger Gallery.
