Event description

Description

Radical Clay: Teaching with the greatest potters of the 1960s
Studio pottery is not just a load of brown pots! - In the mid-20th century it was part of a movement against standardisation and mass production, aiming to reconnect people with traditional materials and celebrate the unique and authentic.
See 50 pieces from the collection including work by Lucy Rie, Bernard and Janet Leach, Hans Coper, Ruth Duckworth and many more…

The exhibition includes recent and archive film footage showing pottery techniques and interviews with makers.

Empire Through the Lens
Bristol Archives now holds an extraordinary collection of photography and film depicting aspects of life from the British Empire and Commonwealth, mostly dating from the 1880s to the 1960s.
Through the selections and words of over 20 people, this exhibition is just a snippet of the many thousands of images that are being catalogued and digitised. Each selector has been invited to choose one image or film from the collection.

The selectors include Bristol based community groups, NGO workers, artists, academics, presenters, and relatives of the original photographers; and represent a variety of viewpoints and expertise on the countries depicted, the legacy of Empire and post-colonial experience. Please note that the exhibition may contain some challenging images
