The Ages of Wembley
Wembley Park, North West London’s world-famous cultural neighbourhood, is delighted to announce Getty Images Gallery’s first exhibition in its new gallery space on Olympic Way.
‘The Ages of Wembley’ opens on 28 June as the first of a year-long programme of exhibitions presented by the curatorial team at Getty Images Gallery in a new space situated in Olympic Way, one of London’s iconic public spaces. Sourced from the world-renowned Getty Images’ archival and contemporary libraries, many of the photographs have never been seen before and are only now being discovered and shown as part of this exhibition.
The exhibition charts the emergence of Wembley Park as a world-famous leisure and entertainment destination from the 1920s onwards, highlighting parallels and references between historic uses of the area and recent developments. Building on this international reputation, Wembley Park has in recent years been transformed and is now a landmark destination and place to live, with culture, entertainment and a community at its heart.
