In Our Own Image? A Century of Imaging of and in South Wales: 1910-2013
Until March 17, 2014
This collaborative exhibition marks the centenary of the University of Glamorgan and its rebirth as the University of South Wales following the merger with the University of Wales Newport in 2013. It draws primarily upon the university’s own art museum collection and its images of south Wales. The contemporary images include several examples by staff members of the Faculty of Creative Industries.
The main focus of the exhibition is identity which is celebrated and considered via the imaging of: society; place; memory and imagination. Many of the exhibits relate directly to the history of the University of Glamorgan which began in 1913 as the South Wales and Monmouthshire School of Mines. Other exhibits are more broadly connected to aspects of modern and contemporary south Wales.
