The exhibition will be the first time that these outstanding works, usually displayed in British Government buildings across the world, have been brought together. Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery has been chosen as the first venue outside London to display this intriguing exhibition. Yinka Shonibare, MBE's 'Nelson's Ship in a Bottle' macquette is featured.

The exhibition runs from 17 November 2012 to 24 February 2013.
