Brett is the Director of The Photographers’ Gallery in London and over the last three decades has been instrumental in establishing photography as a leading art form in the UK, cementing its position in cultural institutions across the country, as well as exporting great British photography to an international audience.
Brett arrived in the UK from Australia in 1980 to undertake an MA at The Courtauld. She studied European Post-War Art under John Golding and Chris Green.
A leading writer and speaker on photography, she appears regularly in the media and takes part in numerous panels and conferences on the subject. In 2013 her key role in developing the photographic field was recognized by University of the Arts London by appointing her a Visiting Fellow.
Brett Rogers became Director of The Photographers’ Gallery in November 2005. Prior to her appointment she worked at the Visual Arts Department at the British Council as Deputy Director and Head of Exhibitions. During her time there she was responsible for establishing the photography programme and policy for the British Council as well as organizing major exhibitions including Anish Kapoor, XLIV Biennale di Venezia, British Pavilion, Venice, 1990; Look at Me: Fashion and Photography in Britain 1960-1997, European touring venues, 1994; Reality Check: British Photography and New Media 2002 – 04, European touring venues, 2004.
Since taking up the post at the Gallery, Rogers led an ambitious £9.2 million capital campaign to further establish its position as the UK’s leading centre for international and British photography. Located in the heart of London’s Soho Quarter, the newly transformed building opened to the public in May 2012 and provides world-class exhibition spaces, as well as fresh opportunities for learning through and about photography.
We hope to see you there!
