Science Museum to launch new venue, Media Space

Date Posted: 04/12/2012

Based on the second floor of the Science Museum, Media Space, opening in June, will comprise a 500 metre squared exhibition space, a flexible studio space for installations and events, and a café/bar.

Media Space will showcase the National Photography Collection from the National Media Museum and use this as a starting point to explore, exhibit and discuss works by contemporary artists across a variety of disciplines.

The first exhibition, Revelations: Experiments in Photography, will explore contemporary artists’ responses to scientific photography from 1850 to 1920.

The exhibition will include photographs made with the assistance of microscopes, telescopes and aircraft, and will include works by a broad spectrum of photographers including William Henry Fox Talbot, Eadweard Muybridge, Clare Strand and Hiroshi Sugimoto.

Revelations: Experiments in Photography will run until September.
