Creative Internships Blog Week 6

Bethan Lewis, Artes Mundi

A huge part of the last 5 weeks has been building up to the Artes Mundi exhibition opening. I’ve been working on cultivating sponsors and making sure that all Artes Mundi’s supporters are invited to see the show. So this week has been very busy in the offices of Artes Mundi as Thursday night we launched our seventh contemporary art exhibition prize.

Artes Mundi has been working with our partners at National Museum Cardiff and Chapter on this international showcase of 6 artists works. Last night saw all these artists, selectors and supporters gather firstly at National Museum and then Chapter.

It was an incredible evening meeting the artists and the many supporters of Artes Mundi without which the exhibition would not have been possible.

As a biennial show we have many interim projects running between the exhibitions, including learning and outreach programmes such as IPP and The Trebannog Project. The next stage in this year’s exhibition and the Artes Mundi catalogue is the conference and awards in January. Where the artists will speak about their work and the winner of the Artes Mundi prize is awarded.

So I encourage you to visit ArtesMundi 7 and experience the art selected to represent the Human Condition; this year’s theme.
