Photography’s getting a lot of attention at the moment. Recently, the Photographer’s Gallery launched the Soho Photography Corner, an outdoor space for free, large-scale exhibitions, and soon, the V&A’s immense collection (that’s 170 years in the making) will be getting its own dedicated seven-room gallery. Now, a three-storey gallery exclusively exhibiting photography is opening on Jermyn Street this month.
The Centre for British Photography has been founded by art dealer James Hyman to showcase the work of artists living and working in the country. It’s launching later this month with two inaugural exhibitions: Headstrong: Women and Empowerment, brought together with the help of Fast Forward to promote work by women and non-binary people, and The English at Home which will feature 150 works from The Hyman Collection exploring the theme of the home throughout 20th century England. Admission to these and future exhibitions will be free.
With the help of guest curators and collaborations, the Centre will put on a regularly changing programme of exhibitions which will feature photography from 1900 up until the present day. Plus, they’ll host a range of talks and events – we’ll hear more on that soon.
