Group Exhibitions

This is a selection of group exhibitions which I have researched and curated since 2004.

It includes a major, touring retrospective of the Welsh Group which began life as the South Wales Group in 1948 and first exhibited in the following year. This exhibition concentrated upon nearly 50 artists and examples of their 2d and 3d works produced since the mid 1990s.

Another big show was that to mark the centenary of the University of Glamorgan (which had begun life in 1913 as the South Wales and Monmouthshire School of Mines) and its rebirth as the University of South Wales in 2013.

Collectively these exhibitions explore and present aspects of the visual culture of modern and contemporary Wales:-
