About

In Re-Imaging Wales, artist, writer and lecturer Iwan Bala will be challenging pre-conceptions of the contemporary art world in Wales. Bala starts with the influence of Modernism moving through to recent developments. He challenges the twentieth century assumption that Wales has no visual art culture of merit and sets a context for looking at contemporary practice and the institutions that support it. Bala is Senior Lecturer in Fine Art at University of Wales Trinity St David in Carmarthen. He has published several books on contemporary art in Wales, including Certain Welsh Artists; Custodial Aesthetics in Contemporary Welsh Art (1999) and Here + Now (2004). His career as an artist has led him to exhibit widely, including a touring exhibition in China in 2010 and a Residency at the National Gallery of Zimbabwe in 1990. His work is in many private collections world-wide and in public collections including The National Museum and Gallery of Wales and the National Library of Wales. £10 / £8 Friends, booking required.
