Artes Mundi 6

Fri 24 Oct — Sun 22 Feb

Carlos Bunga, Omer Fast, Theaster Gates, Sanja Iveković, Ragnar Kjartansson, Sharon Lockhart, Renata Lucas, Renzo Martens and the Institute of Human Activity, Karen Mirza and Brad Butler.


We’re delighted to once again partner with Artes Mundi to present a core exhibition of works by some of this year’s Artes Mundi 6 shortlisted artists. The shortlist features a diverse selection of international artists spanning different generations and cultures but sharing important global themes. These include investigations into the politics of institutional and urban space and social control in the works of Renata Lucas, Carlos Bunga and Theaster Gates. Sanja Iveković, Omer Fast and Renzo Martens continue this thread but more specifically address media representation and manipulation. 

Many of the artists on the shortlist work in collaboration with individuals and communities. For example, Sharon Lockhart’s poetic films and photographs involve working closely with her subjects over a long period of time, whilst the work of Karen Mirza and Brad Butler questions what we mean by collaboration and participation in their practice which includes film, performance, curating and publishing. Ragnar Kjartansson’s work also involves collaboration, often with musicians throughperformance and installations through which he explores themes of friendship, human emotions, love and beauty. All these artists use a wide range of media, actions and strategies to comment on what it means to be human in contemporary society.

The artists were chosen from more than 800 nominations by two invited selectors: Adam Budak, an independent curator currently based in Washington and Sabine Schaschl, Director and Curator of Museum Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich. They particularly looked for artists whose work explores and comments on the human condition and lived experience.

The exhibition opens to the public on October 24th 2014 and the remaining shortlisted artists will present work at National Museum Cardiff and Ffotogallery, Penarth. Details will be announced shortly, as well as events and exciting performances that will take place at the three exhibition venues and other sites across the city.
