You can visit the exhibition in Gallery 94 during our Art Open Day on Sunday 21 November.

Ilse Bing (19 June – 21 November)

Achieving international acclaim as one of Europe’s leading avant-garde and commercial photographers in the interwar period, Ilse Bing (1899-1998) was known for creating urban dreamscapes and surrealist imagery. Her work is best associated with the modern cityscapes of Frankfurt, Paris and New York.

Bing came to Glyndebourne in 1937 to photograph the productions and gardens, in what is thought to be her only UK visit. Already established as a photographer in both Europe and North America, Bing took a series of images of the productions Le nozze di Figaro, Don Giovanni and Così fan tutte. The photographs make an early attempt to capture live performance, a dramatic shift away from the traditional staged theatre photography of the era.

This exhibition presents Glyndebourne’s collection of Ilse Bing’s photographic prints for the first time. Many have never been seen by the general public. The photographs record a key period in Glyndebourne’s early history and form a significant contribution to documenting live opera in 1930’s Britain.

You can visit the exhibition during our Art Open Day on Sunday 21 November, and you can view it online by clicking the link below.
