Works of art will be displayed in a way that questions social and political power and shows how artists have pursued a shared purpose: to push, subvert, question and reimagine what art can be. Vertigo Sea by John Akomfrah, one of a number of major new acquisitions, will be displayed among other featured artists such as Rembrandt, Thomas Jones, Pablo Picasso, Gwen John, Maximilian Lenz, Clare Woods, Bedwyr Williams, Caroline Walker and Clémentine Schneidermann. A breadth of historic, modern and contemporary artworks from Amgueddfa Cymru’s collections will be showcased, grouping many works that have never been shown together before, introducing new relationships and highlighting some of the contemporary social issues faced today. We are working with artists and writers to lead community partners on elements of the interpretation of the exhibition. This will explore a new and unique way of bringing a range of voices to the question The Rules of Art?
