Shiftwork

Preview 2 March 2018

3 March - 14 April 2018

Shiftwork brings together four artists who through their work tease out a number of aesthetic and political issues concerning Gypsy, Roma and Traveller lives through cultural representation. Some of the works were previously shown as solo presentations as part of the Gypsy Maker project; an innovative and ground-breaking concept devised, owned and developed by the Romani Cultural & Arts Company. The aim is to commission established and emerging artists to develop new work that engages GRT communities and the wider public in dialogue about contemporary art and cultural perspectives. This 2018 project is supported by Arts Council of Wales and is commissioned and owned by the Romani Cultural and Arts Company.

James Richards: The Voice

Saturday 24 February 2018 2-4pm
Canton Uniting Church, Cardiff
£5 / £3


This event takes ‘The Voice’ as a thematic device to explore the work of James Richards. Through the voice we look at the individual body, the coming of age in both biological and cultural forms, and the moment of ‘finding your voice’. The event includes films by Meredith Monk, Charlmaigne Palestine, and Anne Maguire. There will be a reading by Giles Bailey of the text Voce di Testa written by Chris McCormack specifically for Music for the Gift as part of the Venice Biennale. This will be a unique opportunity to get fresh perspectives on James’ work and exploration of the voice that is both melancholy and celebratory.

The Voice is part of a programme of events developed by g39 and inspired by the Cymru yn Fenis Wales in Venice exhibition by James Richards. These events will be spaces to explore broader ideas relating to James’ work and the themes raised within the exhibition. The events will also give us the chance to consider the exhibition in the context of Venice, and the presence of Wales within the Venice Biennale.
