Sin! For centuries the tool of the powerful to keep the masses fearful and in check. Genius in its simplicity. And yet somehow it never seems to apply to those who wield the threat of damnation.
We love a bit of sinful behaviour, no puritans us, and we're excited for this exhibition exploring how the idea of sin has been depicted in art across the centuries, from Velásquez to Tracy Emin.
