Steampunk exhibition

13 October 2009 to 21 February 2010
We present the world’s first exhibition of Steampunk art!

Imagine the technology of today with the aesthetic of Victorian science. From redesigned practical items to fantastical contraptions, this exhibition, curated by Art Donovan, showcases the work of eighteen Steampunk artists from across the globe.

Expect ’steam-powered’ computer mice, clockwork hearts, brass goggles and the latest state-of-the-Steampunk-art eye-pod…

A programme of Steampunk-related events will run alongside the exhibition – pick up a leaflet from the Museum or download a copy
here. Intriguing images and a full list of artists can be found on the exhibition’s official blog site:


To coincide with the exhibition, Secondary School Art and D&T departments are invited to submit students’ work to The Great Steampunk Art and Design Competition! For more information about the competition download the leaflet here.

There will also be a special issue of the Museum’s publication Broad Sheet, which will include a specially commissioned Steampunk comic strip created by Sydney Padua.
Location: The Museum of the History of Science, located at Oxford University in the original Ashmolean Building.
