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.
