The Furniture at Dulwich Picture Gallery is a catalogue of the collection of furniture bequeathed by Margaret Morris Desenfans, one of the Gallery’s founders, in the early 19th century. The furniture has adorned the Gallery since it opened in 1817, and has been joined by a few pieces from other sources since then.
The publication was produced in 2009 with a contribution from NADFAS. Photography was by Fulvio Rubesa.

In partnership with Kingston University and the Refugee Council,the Jewish Museum's Ian Lillicrapp has undertaken a project photographing refugees.
The exhibition tells the stories of refugees who have come to London in very different circumstances but all were fleeing from situations where their lives were in danger.
World City: Refugee Stories presents the stories of nine individuals, each from a different country, who have come to London to find refuge over nine decades, from the 1930s through to the present. Each individual has a distinct story to tell, yet there are common threads that link their experiences. The refugees’ stories demonstrate courage and resilience, a commitment to building a new life and to making a positive difference.
The exhibition shows portraits of the refugees in their London homes with objects that have special meaning for them.
