Land Acts

Land Acts presents the work of five artists, collectively exploring the power of land and contemporary, rural experience.

Stefhan Caddick, Rebecca Chesney, Morag Colquhoun, Ella Gibbs and Owen Griffiths.

The featured artists work closely with individuals and communities through their artistic practices to consider the connection and potential between land use and local economies, class, climate change, education and food production.

This exhibition and programme of talks and activities reflects on some of these projects and opens new conversations about the role of the artist in helping us all to reflect on our relationship to land and how we can reimagine it for the future.

Land Acts will be exhibited at Oriel Myrddin Gallery, the main publicly funded art and craft gallery for the south-west Wales region, presenting an ambitious contemporary programme of temporary exhibitions. Located in a listed Victorian building in the centre of Carmarthen, the gallery is pivotal to the cultural energy and identity of the town.
