Mohamed Hassan, Megan Winstone, National Portrait Gallery Collection

This exhibition will bring together ten photographic portraits from the National Portrait Gallery, London, which explore Welsh identity, together with works from two Welsh photographers, Mohamed Hassan and Megan Winstone. This is a new collaborative display – organised in partnership with the National Portrait Gallery – exploring identity, representation and the contemporary relevance of portraiture. The exhibition is part of the National Skills Sharing Partnership Programme, which sees the National Portrait Gallery work with colleagues at twelve museums and galleries across the UK, to create a learning network involving collaborative displays, exchanges, mentoring, seminars and internships.

The works from the National Portrait Gallery highlight well-known Welsh people including The Bevans (Aneurin Bevan, Jenni Lee, Karol Keres; Pietro Nenni) by Henri Cartier-Bresson; singer Shirley Bassey by Mike Owen, and actor Richard Burton by Irving Penn.

Alongside these portraits, artists Mohamed Hassan and Megan Winstone will display a selection of their own work depicting people in Wales today.
