V&A photography exhibition launches in Coventry

Plum from the series FaceAn internationally renowned exhibition of contemporary photographs from the world famous Victoria and Albert Museum has opened in Coventry.

'Something That I’ll Never Really See' is organised by the V&A and features over 30 artists as well as new talents in a selection of 44 photographs.

Ludo Keston, chief executive of the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, introduced guests to the exhibition at the city centre venue in Jordan Well, which will run until January 11, 2009.

The photographs in 'Something That I'll Never Really See' are drawn from the V&A’s permanent collections and include some of the most innovative works created during a pivotal period in photographic history.

Dominic Bubb, exhibitions officer at the Herbert Art Gallery and Museum, said: “Something That I’ll Never Really See offers an exciting range of material which is thought provoking and innovative.

It draws together a diverse range of contemporary photographs that the V&A has collected during the last ten years and held in its permanent collection.

Our new galleries are ideal to host exhibitions such as this and we have every faith that they will attract strong interest from our visitors.”

A mini exhibition by three local community groups will also take place alongside 'Something That I’ll Never Really See'.

The Grapevine drop-in centre for people with learning difficulties is the first of the groups to create photographs of their own communities, and will be followed by Cardinal Wiseman School in November and the School of Art and Design at the University of Wolverhampton in December.

'Something That I’ll Never Really See' will be at Gallery One of The Herbert until January 11, 2009 and admission is free.
