Disappear Here: Patrick Hughes in conversation with Sam Jacob

Bringing together material from the RIBA and Drawing Matter collections, the exhibition Disappear Here (RIBA, 2 May – 7 Oct 2018) explores the history, application and implications of perspective, how it spans truth and illusion, linking the disciplines of art, architecture and mathematics.
