community group visits to autograph's gallery

For more than 30 years we have worked with diverse groups and communities using photography to explore and express issues of identity, representation, social justice and human rights. Autograph welcomes community groups of all ages and levels of interest to come to our gallery.

Our current exhibitions are Poulomi Basu: Fireflies and Sutupa Biswas: Lumen, on view from 4 March - 4 June 2022. A group can see both exhibitions during their visit; Lumen is a film work lasting 30 minutes, and capacity in the gallery to watch the film is 15 people maximum. Please note some artworks depict nudity and the exhibitions deal with sensitive issues including trauma – and may not be appropriate for all ages.

Coming up next is Mónica de Miranda: The Island  from 24 June - 22 Oct. The exhibition will feature two new Autograph artist commissions seen for the first time: a 35-minute film work The Island, and an associated photographic series part of Autograph’s 2021 project ‘Amplify – Stranger in the Village: Afro European Matters', supported by the Art Fund.

We are not currently able to give exhibition tours led by Autograph staff, however we welcome self-directed group visits.

If your group is more than 10 people, fill in our short booking form to request a group visit. Fewer than 10 people? You can book free tickets yourself on Art Tickets.
