National Media Museum confirms ‘London Galleries’
July 16, 2009
The National Media Museum has announced the appointment of a Creative Director for its ‘future London Galleries’.
The museum, which is based in Bradford, West Yorkshire, has appointed Charlotte Cotton, a former Curator of Photography at the V&A, to the newly created position.
In a statement, the NMM said that ‘a presence in London will enable us to bring our exhibitions programme and items from our collection to a wider audience’.
Asked when and where the museum will open its London presence, an NMM spokeswoman said: ‘Unfortunately, we’re unable to disclose information about the venue until we have approval from the government.’
She added: ‘Disclosing the venue at this stage could jeopardise the project. We hope to be in a position to open in 2011/12, subject to fundraising and government approval.’
