A private view exclusively for educators giving an opportunity to explore our new exhibition, Gathered Leaves: Photographs by Alec Soth.

You and an adult guest are invited to explore the exhibition, and the evening will include an introduction by one of the curators who will share information that you can use to faciliate a group visit with students. Our Learning team will also be on-hand to answer any questions you may have about booking an educational visit.

About the exhibition

We are delighted to present the first major UK exhibition by award-winning American photographer Alec Soth, in our Media Space gallery from 6 October 2015.

The exhibition will survey a decade of Soth's work and will be the UK premiere of his eagerly anticipated new series Songbook (2012-14), a chronicle of many journeys across America and a search for human interaction in an era increasingly defined by virtual social networks. Fragmentary, funny and sad, Songbookis a lyrical depiction of the tension between American individualism, and the desire to be united.

It's a 'must see' for Photography students of all ages.

Tell me more about the exhibition.
