New Artes Mundi and Mostyn Partnership
Ben Borthwick, who joined Artes Mundi from Tate Modern last autumn, revealed that the organisation has formed a new long term partnership with Mostyn in Llandudno. In future, following each Artes Mundi cycle, one of the shortlisted artists will be invited to present a solo exhibition in Mostyn’s recently refurbished galleries the year after the prize. He said:
This partnership with Mostyn enables us to broaden the access of audiences in North Wales to Artes Mundi. It also deepens our ongoing support of artists: the prize recognises exceptional achievement for an existing body of work, while this new opportunity to develop a solo exhibition demonstrates our commitment to the development of artists’ practices.
Martin Barlow, Director of Mostyn, said:
Artes Mundi working with galleries is a significant development for the visual arts in Wales. Mostyn looks forward to creating an exciting joint project with Artes Mundi for 2013 as the start of an important and evolving long-term collaboration.”
