11 July - 23 September. Choreographers, composers, poets and visual artists such as Chris Ofili, Mark Wallinger and Conrad Shawcross respond to paintings by Renaissance artist Titian.

The work of these contemporary artists is displayed at the National Gallery and performed at the Royal Opera House by the Royal Ballet, as part of the Cultural Olympiad's London 2012 Festival.

Central to their multi-disciplinary collaboration are three Titian masterpieces belonging to Britain: Diana and Actaeon, The Death of Actaeon and the recently-acquired Diana and Callisto.

Inspired by scenes from "Metamorphoses" by Ovid, the paintings are displayed together at the National Gallery for the first time since the 18th century.

Metamorphosis draws on the themes of change contained in the work of the Italian master, who was the leading member of the 16th-century Venetian school.

Mon-Thu, Sat-Sun 10.00-18.00, Fri 10.00-21.00
