Gurminder Sikand Tree Spirits 1991

Exhibition: The Goddess, the Deity & the Cyborg

Drawing from the works in The Women’s Art Collection as well as loans from public and private collections, the exhibition explores the enduring appeal of the goddess and traces how artists have adapted and even transformed the goddess into an ambiguous figure undefined by gender or even bodily form.

Painting by Sandro Botticelli called Venus and Mars.

National Treasures: Botticelli in Cambridge

Fri 10 May - Tue 10 September

Fitzwilliam Museum

National Treasures: Botticelli in Cambridge brings together a selection of renaissance works from our own collection alongside the Italian artist’s iconic painting of lovers — Venus, the goddess of love and Mars, the god of war.

The arrival of Venus and Mars in Cambridge presents a rare opportunity to see the work outside of London. Until now, the painting has never before left its home at the National Gallery where it’s become one of their most popular and well-loved works since it was bought in 1874.

In celebration of the National Gallery’s 200th birthday, this is one of 12 national treasures on display at venues across the UK.

Cost: Pay what you wish for your exhibition visit.
