As the inaugural exhibition of MOSTYN’s new programme of exhibitions, “Y O U” addresses, and dialogues with, the time in which it takes place. It brings together works by five international artists that invite or require your involvement, aiming to create close relationships with you, the audience.

“Y O U” engages you in ways that you may not be accustomed to in relation to your experience of artworks and exhibitions to date.  As it responds to you, and is subject to perpetual change and re-order in accordance to your activity, it challenges conventional codes of behaviour in the context of a gallery space.

While the exhibition considers the art historical background of the relationship between artwork and viewer, and its growing status over time, it asks, how do these works engage and forge relationships with audiences in distinctively different ways from any other works of art? How is the role of the viewer elevated and placed into the centre uniquely? Through exhibiting artworks that engender such questions,”Y O U” hopes to build an alliance between you, the artwork and MOSTYN itself.

In addition to the artworks on view is a display by the School of Psychology, Bangor University comprising cultural artifacts, documents and other items showing the connection between physical objects and our cognition.  In so doing, the intention is to place the artworks by the participating artists in a broader cultural and contextual field, and enlarge upon our engagement with, and perception of, objects in general.

This exhibition is accompanied by a solo presentation of the work of Keith Arnatt and is the first set of exhibitions of MOSTYN’s new programme, curated by Adam Carr, Visual Arts Programme Curator at MOSTYN, Llandudno (North Wales, UK).

Programme

11am-12pm  Presentation by Adam Carr about the art historical background of the relationship between artwork and viewer and its growing status over time.

Carr’s presentation, titled “The Viewer and Conceptual Art & Conceptual Art and The Viewer” will look at the history and legacy of conceptual art investigating its inception, its main proponents and how it looks at the world around us with particular focus on the role of the viewer.

12pm-12.45pm  Lunch

12.45pm-2.45pm Panel Discussion

Some forms of Conceptual Art engage the viewer in ways that they may not be accustomed to in relation to their experience of artworks and exhibitions. The panel will be talking about how shows like “YOU”, the current MOSTYN exhibition, respond  to the visitor, and are subject to perpetual change and re-order in accordance to their activity, thereby  challenging  conventional codes of behaviour in the context of a gallery space.

How do these works engage and forge relationships with audiences in distinctively different ways from any other works of art? How is the role of the viewer elevated and placed into the centre uniquely? Does it build a different alliance between Viewer, artwork and gallery?

This is an opportunity to hear about the “Y O U” exhibition from Curator Adam Carr and discuss the development of the role of the “viewer”, with artists Aurelien Froment and Bedwyr Williams and Alfredo Cramerotti, director of MOSTYN.

MOSTYN Sunday Talk 9 June 2013 : If YOU are in control of your life, who is controlling YOU?

Posted in nEws and rEleases by alcramer on June 7, 2013

Prof. Guillaume Thierry from Bangor University will be giving this talk at mid-day on 9th June.  Guillaume has done the display about cognition for the current exhibition ‘Y O U’ in MOSTYN.

Reflecting on our perception of and interaction with objects through an ‘expert’s’ eyes, and mixing the included artworks with other fields of study, this promises to be a very engaging and inclusive talk where audience participation is encouraged.
