We are delighted to be a partner venue for the next iteration of the internationally acclaimed Artes Mundi exhibition and prize.
The shortlist of six artists has been selected from over 700 nominations submitted from 90 countries. The Artes Mundi 9 Shortlist includes: Firelei Báez (Dominican Republic), Dineo Seshee Bopape (South Africa), Meiro Koizumi (Japan), Beatriz Santiago Muñoz (Puerto Rico), Prabhakar Pachpute (India) and Carrie Mae Weems (USA).
Artes Mundi 9 will take place from 13 February to 6 June 2021 in Cardiff, across three venues: National Museum Cardiff, Chapter and g39. For this edition the winner of the Artes Mundi 9 Prize will be announced ahead of the exhibition opening on 11 February, instead of toward the end of the exhibition as in previous years.
Artes Mundi presents the UK’s leading international contemporary art prize and is an important arbiter of cultural exchange between the UK and the international visual arts community. Bringing together a major biennial exhibition of some of the world’s most celebrated contemporary artists, Artes Mundi 9 promises to be the foremost opportunity to see international contemporary art in the UK which engages with ideas and issues ever-more significant within our current circumstances.
