Artes Mundi returns to National Museum Cardiff, Chapter and other sites with its 6th exhibition on October 25th 2014.
Artes Mundi 6, which runs for 17 weeks until February 22nd 2015, will feature work from 9 international pioneering, contemporary artists who explore a diverse number of themes. The exhibition will include sculpture, installation, performance, film and photography as well as site specific work in the city centre. At least half of the artists will inhabit the Contemporary Galleries in the West Wing of National Museum Cardiff, a major partner on this ambitious project.
Following successful collaboration during ArtesMundi 5, Chapter arts Centre will be an official exhibiting partner playing a vital role exhibiting the work of participating artists in the gallery but also acting as an important hub for rehearsals, film screenings and other events.
Other venues and sites across the city centre will be announced in the coming months.
In the lead up to and during the exhibition there will be a programme of dialogues, lunchtime talks and free, family-friendly events across Wales.
This year’s shortlist is a diverse selection of international artists spanning different generations and cultures. It includes some of the pioneers of current contemporary art practice on the world stage, and the opportunity to showcase their work in this major exhibition is a huge cultural coup for Wales. The artists shortlisted are: Carlos Bunga Omer Fast Theaster Gates Sanja Ivekovic Ragnar Kjartansson Sharon Lockhart Renata Lucas Renzo Martens Karen Mirza and Brad Butler

FORUM is an informal, monthly event for early career artists, students and graduates. It is a platform for practitioners from various disciplines to exchange ideas, experience and opinions on visual culture.
FORUM is diverse in its nature and has no fixed form. Each event will have its own premise, which will provide a catalyst for discussion on a range of issues in the context of contemporary arts practice.
Every month we will invite artists to show or discuss new or unfinished works that relate to the month's theme in an informal setting, for feedback and discussion. Get in touch if you'd like to share your work!
This blog is where we post up all FORUM's activity and things we want to shout about. Email us to submit any links, opinions or questions and to promote any events you are involved in.
