‘Make/Believe’: Photographs of/by Angus McBean – Tessa Sidey Gallery, School of Art – 16 May-30 September 2022

This exhibition showcases the work of Welsh photographer Angus McBean (1904-1990) in advertising, his commissioned portraits, and his annual Christmas cards. It offers glimpses of McBean’s private life, holidaying on the continent and portraits of McBean at home, in later life, by the contemporary photographer Robert Greetham. Most of the work on display was purchased for the School of Art collection with the aid of grants from the Art Fund and V&A Purchase Grant schemes. It has been curated by students on the undergraduate module ‘Curating an Exhibition’. 

The exhibition is on from the 16th May to the 30th September 2022, Monday – Friday, 10am – 5pm.
