The Science Museum, in collaboration with the National Media Museum, has presented, for the first time, its plans for its new London-based photography gallery - Media Space.

After four years of speculations, delays and funding calls, the Science Museum and the National Media Museum have announced the June 2013 opening of the London-based Media Space.

The first exhibition to take place in the Media Space will be Revelations: Experiments in Photography, which will "explore contemporary art photographers' responses to scientific photography made between 1850 and 1920." Speaking to BJP, a spokeswoman for the Museum says that Revelations will use historical works from the National Media Museum photography collection by artists such as William Fox Talbot, Harold Edgerton and Eadweard Muybridge, and explore the relationship between these works and contemporary art photographers such as Clare Strand, Hiroshi Sugimoto and Joris Jansen, who have loaned their images to the Museum.
