Launching Spring 2022.
Temporary Exhibition: TNT ‘21 1 Oct 2021 – 13 Feb 2022
Soho Photography Quarter (SPQ), is an exciting new cultural space presenting free photography and moving image exhibitions highlighting the very best of contemporary photography.
An initiative of The Photographers’ Gallery, in partnership with Westminster City Council, Soho Photography Quarter is due to fully launch in Spring 2022 - with the first phase of works already underway.
Situated just off Oxford St, at the gateway to Soho, SPQ offers a beautifully designed pedestrianised environment to extend the Gallery’s programme into an outside space, offering visitors and locals new ways to discover and engage with photography.
The finalised ‘quarter’ will comprise an art frieze and projections in the main square, with additional image banners hung in the adjoining walkways to create a series of dynamic, interlinked displays to inspire and encourage further exploration of the artists and their works.
The scheme, designed by Andreas Lechthaler Architecture, is part of Westminster City Council’s ambitious £150m plans to invigorate Oxford Street and the surrounding areas and will include new seating areas, trees and planters, enhanced access for pedestrians and cyclists, improved safety and air quality and an enriched cultural offer for the district.
