Uncover the stories behind our exhibition, Lost, and explore the works after-hours with a glass of wine. As part of Museums at Night, poet, classicist and Hellenophile Ruth Padel joins Syrian artist Issam Kourbaj to present Lost.

Padel will read a new poem, "Lesbos 2015", influenced by her meetings on the island of Lesbos both with the inhabitants and with some of the thousands of Syrians who have fled there.
