What a week! A huge ‘thank you’ to all those who made it to our opening last Friday. Many of you have kindly told us how you enjoyed the exhibition opening, and how pleased you are to see Swansea galleries working together on a project like this. It has been a pleasure to hear from so many of you,  so keep your comments coming in to us via Facebook and Twitter, #letsseewhathappens.

We continued the opening festivities last Saturday afternoon with ‘Poetry Action’ in Swansea Market – a live poetry reading event organised by Let’s see what happens… artists Owen Griffiths and Zeng Huanguang. This was followed by our ‘In Conversation’ discussion with all the exhibition artists and led by curator, Karen MacKinnon.

Over the next few weeks each of the artists will be talking about their experiences and their work, starting tonight, Thursday 3 October, with Owen and Huanguang who will be discussing socially engaged practice from 6.30pm at the YMCA Swansea. This is a free event, no booking required, but please arrive early as seating is limited.

If you are aged 14 – 24, we will also be offering you the amazing opportunity to work with Yingmei Duan in a series of three performance workshops, starting on Tuesday 8 October, 5.30-7.30pm at the YMCA.

Yingmei will be giving young performers the unique opportunity to work with her to learn new skills and enhance their own practice, and to perform as part of this project.

If you would like to take part please call the gallery on 01792 516900 to register. All workshops are free but booking is essential.

See Yingmei Duan perform ‘Happy Yingmei’ at Elysium Gallery on College Street, Tuesday – Sunday, 11am-5pm until 3 November.

Maleonn has now left Swansea, but before he left, he managed to pop into the new Swansea University Trinity St. Davids (Swansea Met), to talk about his work with over 140 fine art and photography students at the Dynevor campus. Don’t miss his exhibition ‘Studio Mobile’ at Mission Gallery, open Tuesday – Sunday, 11am-5pm.

Let’s see what happens… is a Glynn Vivian Art Gallery Offsite exhibition featuring the work of seven artists, four from Wales and three from China including Tim Davies, Yingmei Duan, Paul Emmanuel, Owen Griffiths, Maleonn, Fern Thomas and Zeng Huanguang.

It takes place in six venues across Swansea city centre and demonstrates a variety of working methods, including painting, performance, video installation and socially engaged practice.
