NGA Photography

Various works in many locations – The NGA does not have a dedicated photography gallery – at present there are some very good selections of photography on exhibition but alas they are scattered throughout the building. This makes it almost like a “where’s Wally’ exercise as lovers of the medium wander about the whole gallery trying to spot them. But what is on exhibition does actually make it worth it – if you have the time and energy.

Here’s a gem of a small but wonderful NGA photography exhibition – Mexican Modernism – click here  Till 26 November 2017
