Autograph's gallery in Hackney, London reopened on 23 June with two exhibitions highlighting identity and neurodiversity — and new measures in place to help ensure a safe visit for everyone. We can't wait to see you again.
Autograph is a place to see things differently. Since 1988, we have championed photography that explores issues of race, identity, representation, human rights and social justice, sharing how photographs reflect lived experiences and shape our understanding of ourselves and others.
Although our gallery temporarily closed in March 2020 due to Covid-19, Autograph as an organisation remained very much open. We created content to share online, alongside our programmes of ground-breaking exhibitions, events, projects, workshops, books and more. We're delighted to welcome you back to visit us in person from 23 June, and you’ll also see more from us digitally in the future too.
At our gallery, we've introduced a number of changes to help ensure a safe experience for everyone, including asking visitors to book free, timed tickets before their visit. To plan your visit and find out more, have a look at our Visit Us page and you can book tickets here.
Everyone is welcome at Autograph, and you can expect a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere during your visit. We can't wait to see you again. Here's what's on:
Based in Hackney, Submit to Love Studios is home to a collective of self-taught artists — all of whom have survived brain injury. This exhibition features new work by 23 Studio artists, using Autograph’s unique collection of
photography as inspiration for textile works.
