Artes Mundi is the key internationally focused flagship visual arts organisation in Wales generating unique opportunities for individuals and local communities to engage creatively with the urgent issues of our time in ways which resonate with us all.


We are committed to stimulating dialogue and debates, internationally and locally, that develop greater understanding of ourselves, of others, and of the relations between familiar and distant cultures.


Artist John Akomfrah stands and looks directly towards the camera. He is smiling and wearing a dark denim jacket. He is standing in front of one of his films so the film is projected across him and the background behind him. The film shows a large rock in the sea with waves crashing on the sand.

Exciting Times for Artes Mundi 7 Prize Winner, Sir John Akomfrah

Chelsea Pettit is standing outside in front of a hedgerow. She is looking and smiling directly towards the camera. She has short brown curly hair and is wearing a blue and white dress. Out of focus, you can see there is a path with a black cat sitting on it.
