Media Space will showcase the National Photography Collection held by the National Media Museum through a series of major exhibitions. A collaboration between the Science Museum and the National Media Museum, Media Space will also invite photographers, artists and the creative industries to respond to the wider collections of the Science Museum Group to explore visual media, technology and science.
Media Space will be based on the second floor of the Science Museum. It will include a 500 m² gallery, a flexible Virgin Media Studio for installations, events and creative workshops, and a café/bar.
We would like to thank all donors of photographs and the buyers who supported the Media Space fundraising benefit sale in May 2012. Special thanks go to Christie's and Darbyshire. We are also grateful to a number of other individuals and organisations for their generous support.
