The Photographers' Gallery is in transition - this autumn, the gallery will be relocating from Great Newport Street, its home for the past thirty-seven years, to a building at 16-18 Ramillies St., W1. During 2009, the gallery will continue to present exhibitions, talks and events, and education projects, and will also have its print sales, cafe and bookshop facilities all located on one floor.
'Goodbye Great Newport Street': Sunday, November 16th. Join the gallery team for afternoon tea, and sign the book of memories to mark the end of the Great Newport Street address. A special live performance, 'Wall Walk' by artist Silvia Ziranek, is scheduled for 5pm, celebrating the history of the Gallery at its current address and anticipating the challenges and hopes for the new site.
"London has been crying-out for a place like this to rival those in New York and Paris," remarked photographer David Bailey. "The location of the new Photographers' Gallery in Ramillies St. offers a fabulous opportunity to put photography right back into the heart of London life and culture, and finally give photography in this country an international profile."
