The Value of Nothing
An exhibition from four artists whose works each implicitly convey a different idea of value to that of the art market. Raising the question of what it is we should really value, price is immaterial in this exhibition featuring Madi Acharya-Baskerville, Anna Jung Seo, Playpaint and David Sullivan.
Until 26 August 2018, Studio 1:1 Gallery, 57A Redchurch Street, London E2 7DJ.

Dim ond Geiriau (ydi faith) / (A language is) Only Words
Iwan Bala curates this exhibition which looks at how the tradition of Welsh poetic writing has been incorporated into artworks – where the ‘word’ becomes ‘image’ and ‘object’. Bala conceptualises these works within the discourse of ‘custodial aesthetics’ – the artists having a role of social resistance as custodians of marginalised cultures.
Until 31 August 2018, BayArt, 54b/c Bute Street, Cardiff CF10 5AF.
