Bernd and Hilla Becher: Industrial Visions
26 October 2019 – 1 March 2020

This exhibition “brings together 225 photographs by the duo who spent 50 years documenting industrial structures across Europe, including Wales. This exhibition is the last show that Hilla selected prior to her death in 2015 and features photographs from the extensive series the Becher’s took exploring the south Wales valleys in 1965 and 1966. Selected archive material from the Becher studio will also be displayed, offering a unique insight into their research methods and creative process whilst in Wales.”
