Information and discussion on all aspects of British photographic history
The National Museum of Science and Industry today confirms that its media galleries will open in spring 2013. The Media Space will be sited on 2nd floor of the Science Museum and it will consist of a breathtaking gallery for the exhibition of visual media surrounded by cultural spaces for exploring, discussing, testing and exhibiting creative technologies. The project will cost £4 million and is the fruit of the partnership between the Science Museum and the National Media Museum.
Commenting on the announcement, Ian Blatchford Director, National Museum of Science and Industry said “Establishing a home for creative practice and the creative industries in one of London’s most vibrant and innovative spaces has long been our ambition and I am pleased to see it realised. The National Media Museum’s world class exhibitions and collections will be a fantastic new offer for our visitors.”
Charlotte Cotton will step down as the Creative Director of the space from March 2012 having developed the curatorial vision for the space.
Heather Mayfield said, “Working with Charlotte has been an enlightening and inspirational experience. We are privileged to have worked with one of the finest curatorial minds in the fields of photography & the wider media.”
Charlotte Cotton said, “Bringing this vision into reality alongside the Science and National Media Museum teams has been a pleasure. I look forward to its opening in 2013.”
