Wolfson Gallery

The Wolfson Gallery comprises a simple exhibition space within the confines of SOAS Library, offering a small display area for photographic exhibitions relating to:

  • regions and subjects studied at the School
  • activities undertaken by staff and students at SOAS
  • libraries and archives in general.

The Gallery is run as a non-commercial exhibition space and we do not charge a fee for using it. However, any costs that are incurred in relation to an exhibition must be covered by the Exhibitor. For further details, go to Guidance for Exhibitors in the Wolfson Gallery (pdf; 64kb)  .

As the Gallery is located inside the Library, it is usually only accessible to SOAS Library card holders.
