Director's Talk

Saturday 8 December 2012, 3.30pm to 4.30pm


Join Impressions Director Anne McNeill to hear about her selection of our 40th anniversary exhibition Roads to Wigan Pier and the gallery's role in British photography over the last 40 years.

In November 1972 Impressions Gallery opened in a room above a shop in York with the first ever exhibition by the then unknown Martin Parr. As one of the first specialist photography galleries in Europe it has gone on to play a vital role in championing photography and has had a huge impact on the development of the photographic culture in Britain.

Free event, booking advised.

Before the Director's Talk you are also welcome to attend Archive Connections at the National Media Museum from 2.00pm to 3.00pm, where Anne McNeill will be in discussion with Brian Liddy, Curator, to discuss the gallery's connections with the museum's photographic archive. Booking advised.
