Bruce Mclean at the V&A
Bruce McLean was born in Glasgow and studied at Glasgow School of Art from 1961 to 1963, and at Saint Martin’s School of Art, London, from 1963 to 1966.
At Saint Martin’s, McLean studied with Anthony Caro and Phillip King. In reaction to what he regarded as the academicism of his teachers he began making sculpture from rubbish.
Since then, McLean has gained international recognition for his paintings, ceramics, prints, work with film, theatre and books.
Bruce and Oliver Watson, a retired curator of the Ceramics Department, will be on hand giving tours throughout the show.
