Admission: Free

'Eights in the Octagon' is a UCL exhibition inspired by the Octagon Gallery’s shape and location. Join the exhibition’s curators to learn how historians of science and culture investigated the number eight as a significant principle in Medieval and Renaissance systems of measurement, cosmology, design and creativity. Listen to five thematic readings, then follow the labyrinth on the Gallery floor to discover more about nature, religion, study, and leisure from Medieval and Renaissance perspectives.

This event is part of the UCL Festival of the Arts.
