24/7 | Private View Offers

The 24/7 exhibition explores how we can reset the natural rhythms of life - work, leisure, rest and sleep. Through the work of international artists, designers, scientists and thinkers, the exhibition is perfect for event planners looking for a relevant and creative backdrop to their events.

Events planners are able to incorporate private views, curated talks, tours and delegate offers into events held at Somerset House between 31 Oct 2019 and 23 Feb 2020.

With event spaces capable of hosting meetings, conferences, product launches, exhibitions and filming or photo shoots, Somerset House’s flexible approach to events will provide delegates with a host of opportunities to experience 24/7 as part of their event.  In addition to private tours and viewings, this can include the development of event content that crosses boundaries between the exhibition and event as well as engagement with resident artists.

The inability to switch off has become one of the most important issues of our time. Since 2010 we’ve added a full week (37 hours) to our working year, yet 200,000 working days are now lost annually due to insufficient sleep.  Britain has become a nation of night owls, with almost half of the country (48%) regularly going to bed after 11pm.  Living in the glow of blue light, people in the UK now check their smartphones, if averaged over 24 hours, every 12 minutes.

For the ultimate 24/7 experience you can privately hire the exhibition out of hours, followed by an evening reception in our Great Arch Hall.

Within the reception space you will experience a new live data visualisation created by Somerset House Studios resident Tekja. The three-dimensional projection displays live data revealing the rhythms of sleeplessness worldwide and exploring the relationship between time and sleep in the connected 24/7 world.
