Jocelyn Herbert and Samuel Beckett
From the Jocelyn Herbert Archive at the National Theatre

About

MA Curating and Collections at Chelsea College of Arts present an exhibition exploring the working relationship between the acclaimed theatre and film designer, Jocelyn Herbert, and the iconic playwright and author, Samuel Beckett.

The materials for the exhibition are selected from the Jocelyn Herbert Archive at the National Theatre, the NT’s only archive dedicated to a designer. The archive includes sketchbooks, set and costume drawings, annotated scripts, research material, notebooks and diaries, masks and puppets, correspondence, personal photographs and official production photography from rehearsals and performances. Herbert’s working relationship with Beckett spans from the 1950’s to the 1970’s; using artefacts from the archive the exhibition will reveal aspects of the biography of Jocelyn Herbert, her personal and professional relationships, and will give a unique insight into the theatre making process.

This show is curated by the Exhibition Studio Workshop - the practice-based unit of Chelsea’s MA Curating and Collections course. It is part of a series of shows entitled Work From the Collections, and is the inaugural exhibition in what is hoped will be an ongoing series exploring the Jocelyn Herbert Archive at the National Theatre.
