Grainger Photographed: Public Facades and Intimate Spaces

Percy Grainger understood the power of the photograph to document significant events and to entice his adoring public. Grainger Photographed: Public Facades and Intimate Spaces looks at aspects of portrait photography through the prism of Grainger’s diverse collection. It displays fine formal portraits from some of the world’s most highly regarded studios alongside intimate images of Grainger’s private life.

The exhibition is accompanied by a series of free public programs in which curators and photographers explore curatorial concepts behind the exhibition, contemporary practice and the power of an image as both a marketing tool and a means of self-expression.
