Photography Competition – Winners Celebration
Join us for a special late night viewing of the winning works from our Yalta 1945 photography competition on Thursday 9th March 6.30pm, with an after hours tour by museum staff.
The Ben Uri Gallery invited the public to send in their photographs inspired by the themes of INFLUENCE, DIVISION and UNITY. Come and meet the winner and runners up who will be available to discuss their work. It will also be an opportunity to reflect on how the themes of Yalta 1945 resonate today in our current political climate.
The pictures will be on display in the gallery and on our website for the last two weeks of Yalta 1945, from 6th-19th March. This is a free event, however space is limited so please reserve your place here.
