Previous Projects

Man and Mountain

Keswick Museum and Art Gallery, Keswick
18 May 2018 to January 2019

This exhibition celebrates the impressive life and climbing career of Britain’s most famous mountaineer, Sir Chris Bonington. The first Briton to scale the North Wall of the Eiger in 1962 and to place a British team on the summit of Mount Everest in 1975, Bonington was at the cutting edge of the sport for more than three decades. He continued to explore and climb into his late seventies. The exhibition contains biographical material, stunning and intimate detail about his mountaineering career and a critical look at his legacy.
