Bruce McLean

Scottish, 1944
Bruce McLean (born 1944) is a British artist who is best known for his contributions to the development of conceptual art in the UK during the 1960s and 1970s. He was born in Glasgow, Scotland and studied at the Glasgow School of Art and later at Saint Martin's School of Art in London.
McLean's work often challenges traditional artistic conventions, questioning the value of art objects and the role of the artist in society. He has worked in a variety of media, including sculpture, painting, photography, and performance art. Some of his most famous works include his series of "pose works," in which he photographed himself in exaggerated poses as a comment on the art world's obsession with the cult of personality.
McLean has exhibited widely both in the UK and internationally and has received numerous awards for his contributions to contemporary art. He is also a respected educator and has taught at a number of institutions including Goldsmiths College, the Slade School of Fine Art, and the Royal College of Art.
