‘Wales and the Modern Movements Revisited’ looks back at an exhibition – ‘Wales and the Modern Movements’ held at Aberystwyth University in 1973 – which set out to interpret the events in twentieth century art through the works of artists working in Wales. The exhibition draws on the collection of the School of Art and the National Library of Wales to offer a snapshot of modern art practice in Wales throughout the last century.

Exhibition Openings, 18 May 2019 – Some Impressions

Saturday was a busy day, and students and their families and friends, staff and other visitors certainly enjoyed themselves. Below are some impressions of the day.

Well done, everybody!

(Click on the images to enlarge them.)

The degree show and postgraduate exhibition are still open until the 30th May, Monday – Friday, 10am – 5pm. The Classic/Romantic exhibition, which is curated by 2nd- and 3rd-year students and includes objects of the School of Art collections, is open until the 30th August.

‘Classic|Romantic’-Exhibition Opening, 18th May 2019

Our new exhibition Classic|Romantic: Works from the School of Art Collection will be opening in the Tessa Sidey Gallery at the School of Art, Aberystwyth University, on Saturday 18 May 2019, 3 − 6 pm.

The show is then open from the 20th May until the 30th of August 2019, Monday – Friday, 10am-5pm.

Classic|Romantic invites visitors to explore the meanings of two widely used words and reflect on the relationship between them. The works on display range from sixteenth-century woodcuts to late twentieth-century photography and twenty-first-century ceramics.  Also included are prints by or after notable Romantics such as Blake, Fuseli, Goya and Turner.  Most of them are focussed on the human, superhuman and not quite human figure. Together, they demonstrate shared interests in – as well as different approaches to – mythology and Greco-Roman antiquity.

The show has been curated by students on the undergraduate module ‘Curating an Exhibition’.

All welcome.

We are looking forward to seeing you!
