Don’t miss your last chance to see our Offsite exhibition Let’s see what happens a major international exhibition featuring the work of artists from Wales and China, taking place in various venues across Swansea city centre.

The multi venue exhibition includes work by Tim Davies, Yingmei Duan, Paul Emmanuel, Owen Griffiths, Maleonn, Fern Thomas and Zeng Huanguang and demonstrates a variety of working methods including painting, performance, video installation and socially engaged practice.

Why not try one or all of these things this week:

  • Try Chinese pickles
  • Take a (backwards) walk through ‘Market 8
  • Observe a lily dying
  • Add your message to Huanguang’s ‘After Occupy London
  • Meet Yingmei Duan in her forest
  • Stand within a fabric mountain
  • Drink Chinese tea
  • Pick out your favourite portrait from Maleonn’s ‘Studio Mobile

Hear Tim Davies, talk about his work ‘Chase (Xiamen)‘ and ‘Market 8‘, on display at 41 High Street.

Also this week, artist Lucy Donald will introduce you to some of the artists from our current Glynn Vivian Offsite exhibition, Let’s see what happens… in our 3 day ‘art school’ workshop for 12-16 year olds.

Participants will visit the exhibition, meet the artists and then get a chance to experiment and create work inspired by the show. Workshops take place on Wednesday 30 & Thursday 31 October and Friday 1 November, 11am-4pm at the YMCA, Swansea. Booking essential, call 01792 516900.

Glynn Vivian Young People’s Film Club continues tomorrow night with ’12 films to watch before you grow old’. Join us for free cult films and popcorn for Jake Gyllenhaal’s chilling teen sci-fi, ‘Donnie Darko’ (15), on Tuesday 29 October from 5pm at the YMCA, Swansea.
