The history of The Photographers’ Gallery


On 19 May 2012, The Photographer’s Gallery 2012 finally re-opened its doors after an 18-month closure and a £8.9m facelift. The new exhibition programme has been launched with a major solo exhibition of renowned Canadian photographer Edward Burtynsky and work by New Delhi based Rags Media Collective. Burtynsky’s long-term investigation into the subject of oil brings to light, according to the press release, ‘mechanics of the manufacture, distribution and use of one of the world’s most highly contested resources while exploring its impact on our lives, culture and the environment.’ The exhibition Burtinsky: OIL showcases a selection of over thirty large-scale images of this work. An Afternoon Unregistered on the Richte Scale (2011) is the silent, looped video projection displayed by the Rags Media Collective, which is accompanied by a sculptural work entitled 36 Planes of Emotion (2011). Both exhibitions will be on display until 1 July 2012 and are surely worth a visit.
