Serpentine 50

The Serpentine celebrates its 50th anniversary in 2020. Building on a tradition of boundary-crossing firsts, from the architecture Pavilion and digital commissions to the ideas marathon and the General Ecology programme, the Serpentine has expanded well beyond the walls of what was built as a Hyde Park teahouse in the 1930s.
