Victorian Radicals gives visitors the chance to discover the story of the Pre-Raphaelites – Britain’s first modern art movement – and their influence on artists and makers well into the 20th century.

The exhibition also highlights the role played by female artists and how Birmingham became the centre of the Arts and Crafts movement. 

The Guardian called it a "riveting rethink for the trippy, cosplaying pre-Raphaelites".
