group visits

Autograph is a place to see things differently. We warmly welcome schools, FE/HE, community and youth groups, SEND, and tours to book a free, self-led group visit to Autograph's gallery in Shoreditch, London. You can see two new photography exhibitions: Armet Francis' photographs chronicling the lives of people of the African diaspora for more than 40 years, and Hélène Amouzou's evocative work contemplating the complex emotions of displacement and exile.

We recommend these exhibitions for students KS2 and up, including HE students of all levels (BA, MA, PhD) and from a wide range of courses such as photography, film, fine art, fashion, visual cultures and the social sciences.
