For the third year, the Exhibition Studio Workshop collaborates with the National Theatre Archive to highlight the seminal work of Jocelyn Herbert (1917 – 2003) who was among the most important and innovative theatre designers in the UK since the 1960s.

This year, the exhibition focuses on Jocelyn Herbert’s design for film. Reflecting on her working processes, personal and professional experience, the following films are represented: Tony Richardson’s ‘Ned Kelly’ (1970) and ‘Hotel New Hampshire’ (1983); Karel Reisz ‘Isadora’ (1968); Lindsay Anderson’s ‘O’Lucky Man!’ (1973) and ‘The Whales of August’ (1987); and, Tony Harrison’s ‘Prometheus’ (1988).

Categorized as pre-production, production and post-production, the exhibition will showcase photographs, sketches, drawings, costumes, diaries and correspondence from the Jocelyn Herbert Archive at the National Theatre, from the time when these films were made.
