Opening Talk | Before and After Coal

In 1982, American photographer Milton Rogovin came to Scotland to photograph Scottish miners. Forty years on from the Miners’ Strike in 1984, artist, Nicky Bird has updated Rogovin’s documentation by meeting with individuals and families connected with the original photographs and their central themes.

Join Nicky Bird (artist), Anne Lyden (Director-General) and Robin Baillie (National Galleries of Scotland Outreach) as they consider Rogovin’s artworks and introduce the innovative collaboration between Bird, the National Galleries of Scotland and mining communities.
