Presented in partnership with Cardiff Metropolitan University, Artes Mundi launches the first of our free At the table series with artist Firelei Báez.
The At the table series brings together the voices of the six Artes Mundi 9 shortlisted artists alongside those of international curators, artists, historians, thinkers and writers in a series of roundtable discussions. The talks will centre on themes and ideas present in their work and the interwoven relationship between histories and practices, locally to internationally.
The first of six events presents artist Firelei Báez in conversation with Rachel Kent, Chief Curator of the Museum of Contemporary Art, Australia; Dr. Francesca Sobande, lecturer of Digital Media Studies at University of Cardiff; and visual artist, researcher and presenter Dr. Adéọlá Dewis. Imagining we are sat around a table sharing a meal and exchanging ideas, this event is a chance to hear different concerns and perspectives while getting to know the artist and their work.
