The Enchanted Forest: An exhibition celebrating 200 years of Grimm’s Fairy Tales

Thursday 29th November 2012 9:30am - Friday 7th December 2012 6pm 107 Charing Cross Road Exhibition, Free Event

The first ever collection of Grimm's fairy tales, entitled Children's and Household Tales, was published in December 1812; two centuries later it is still thrilling children and adults alike. To celebrate the 200th anniversary of the tales seven of the illustration world's brightest young stars will be interpreting these wonderfully dark stories in a very special Christmas exhibition at Foyles. With inspiration taken from both the classics such as Hansel and Gretel, as well as lesser-known tales like The Golden Bird, this exhibition is about interpreting and re-discovering a monumental cultural legacy. Prepare to be spellbound as you enter The Enchanted Forest.

The contributing artists include Emma Block, Lesley Barnes, Laura Barrett, Natsuki Otani, Yelena Bryksenkova, Emmeline Pidgen and Karolin Schnoor.

The Enchanted Forest is grateful to IdeasTap for providing funding for this project through its Ideas Fund
