Due to concerns over the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), Autograph is temporarily closing. Our exhibitions and events are postponed, but we look forward to welcoming you back later in the year.
Join our mailing list for updates on reopening.
Don't miss this pop-up group exhibition featuring new work by 23 artists at Submit To Love Studios. Based in Hackney, the Studio is a collective of self-taught artists - all of whom have survived brain injuries.
The work in Common Threads uses Autograph's unique photography collection as inspiration for collaborative textile works. Photographs charting the contribution of diverse cultures to Britain over two centuries have been reimagined by the Studio as elaborate embroideries, appliqué and fabric prints.
Inspired by the collective’s lived experience of brain injury, Common Threads explores ideas of heritage, talent and otherness - and the many ways underrepresented stories can be told.
Everyone is welcome at Autograph. You can expect a friendly and inclusive experience during your visit. Our building is accessible, with step-free access to all spaces. Accessible, unisex toilets are on all floors.
