Navigations - Art as Research
20 May 2017 - 19 July 2017
Seven international artists reflect on the nature of progress, decline, globalization and time. Using Wales’ Canal network as a starting point, where they have all been resident artists, they consider the process of making and thinking as an artist while responding to a particular site or situation.
Including new work commissioned for the exhibition, alongside artwork presented outdoors, the exhibits include sculptural interventions, performance, photography and video works. Exhibiting artists are:
Mo Abd-Ulla | Nicky Coutts | Andrew Dodds | Alan Goulbourne | Mair Hughes | Cheon Pyo Lee | Dan Rees
The three-year artist residency programme partnered Glandŵr Cymru, the Canal & River Trust in Wales, Arts Council of Wales and Addo and included projects with galleries and visual arts organizations, Bevilacqua la Masa in Venice, Emscher Kunst in Germany, Chapter in Cardiff and Oriel Davies.
The exhibition is curated by Addo and Oriel Davies.
Navigations – Art as Research is supported by the Arts Council of Wales.
Some works are for sale. Collectorplan is available.
