Aboutnding on a high this year, we discuss the 'pop-up' exhibition, looking at its strengths as a new venue, fresh and exciting; as a temporary venue for temporary projects, the grassroots aspect and DIY ethic of organising and curating your own space and the pragmatics of doing so. Leading the informal discussions will be: Cat Gardiner, Gallerist and Curator for gallery/ten, specialing in contemporary art design, representing some of the very best emerging established artists designers with a Welsh connection. In December 2012 the gallery opened on Windsor place, Cardiff after operating as a pop-up gallery from 2010 - 2012. Also leading the discussion will be Dafydd Williams and Zosia Krasnowolska, two artists who founded and run the*kickplate*project, a photography-focussed project space starting off as a pop-up gallery in a former barber shop in Abertillery, Wales, to bring international fine art photography to communities that are not the usual target audience of art galleries.
Alongside FORUM we will be holding a pop-up photocopy exhibition in ffotogallery's new meeting room in Chapter! All are welcome and encouraged to get involved, to do so, bring a black and white photocopy of your work to exhibit, any size!. Refreshments will be provided and we will be able to end FORUM for the year on a high note!
