Inventing the Future is an exhibition drawn from private collections and public institutions that celebrates the extraordinary contribution that twentieth-century Greshamians made in engineering, design and the arts.

Along with works by the more well known Greshamians W H Auden, Stephen Spender, Benjamin Britten and Ben Nicholson the exhibition includes many others whose work has made a significant difference to our lives.
