A look back at the December Mostra 2017

Last December the BSR saw the first mostra of our 2017–18 programme, in which our seven Fine Arts award-holders and resident architect put together an exhibition of works produced during the course of their residencies. Here we bring you a selection of photographs of works from the exhibition. You can read more about the practice of each artist by clicking on their name.

The exhibition was made possible with funding from Robin Hambro, with additional support from the Arts Council of Wales, the Augusta Charitable Trust, the Derek Hill Foundation, the Giles Worsley Fund (in collaboration with the RIBA), the Incorporated Edwin Austin Abbey Memorial Scholarships, the Linbury Trust and the Nicholas Berwin Charitable Trust.
