MOSTYN announces YOU exhibition

MOSTYN presents YOU an exhibition on view 27 April–7 July 2013. As the inaugural exhibition of MOSTYN’s new programme of exhibitions, YOU addresses, and dialogues with, the time in which it takes place. It brings together works by five international artists that invite or require the visitor’s involvement, making them a sixth participant in the exhibition.


While YOU considers the art-historical background of the relationship between artwork and viewer, and its growing status over time, it asks, “How do the included works engage and forge relationships with audiences in distinctly different ways from other works of art? How is the role of the visitor elevated and placed uniquely at the centre?” Through exhibiting artworks that engender such questions, YOU will build an alliance between viewer, artwork and MOSTYN itself.

In addition to the artworks on view there will be a display by the School of Psychology, Bangor University comprising cultural artefacts, documents and other items showing the connection between physical objects and our cognition. Their inclusion will place the exhibited artworks in a broader cultural context, and enlarge upon our engagement with, and perception of, objects in general.
