The Photographer's Gallery

The Photographers’ Gallery will unveil its new home for international and British photography in the heart of London's Soho on Saturday 19 May 2012.

The Gallery’s opening will mark the conclusion of its £8.9 million capital campaign, which has been supported by Arts Council England’s Lottery Fund alongside a range of Trusts, Foundations, corporates and individuals.

Designed by award-winning Irish architects O’Donnell + Tuomey, the transformed building features a two storey extension that will double the size of the previous exhibition space. Providing a platform for an enhanced programme of exhibitions, the generously proportioned galleries will showcase established and emerging photographic talent from the UK and around the world. A new environmentally controlled floor will create opportunities to show more work from archives and museum collections and higher ceilings in the top floor galleries will provide dynamic spaces for large-scale and moving image works.

A sculpted terrazzo entrance with an open plan design will connect the ground-level Café and lower-ground Bookshop to the street.

The renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky and New Delhi based Raqs Media Collective will launch the 2012 exhibition programme on Saturday 19 May 2012.
