A Hayward Touring exhibition from the Arts Council Collection, on behalf of Southbank Centre, London
This is the second in a series of touring exhibitions from the Arts Council Collection presenting new film and video works in the form of a miniature season. A different work will show every few days for the duration of the exhibition, providing a useful insight into current practices in artists’ film and video.
In a time when we receive and discard images with increasing speed, many artists relish the chance to bend our ear, tell a story, or allow us the chance to pause and reflect. The diversity of work in Now Showing 2 is a testament to the wealth of possibilities offered by the moving image, and to the innovation of artists working with the field today.

A selection of films supported by Arts Council England and Film and Video Umbrella
These works will be shown in various formats throughout the gallery’s permanent collection. In Room 7, four artists will each be showing one film over a four week period. These artists are Marcus Coates, Breda Beban, Anthony Shapland and Hiraki Sawa.
Three other artists will be showing in our permanent galleries amongst our paintings, Greta Alfaro, Gemma Pardo and Adele Vye. Whilst not site specific, these works have been placed sensitively amongst seascapes, still lives and landscapes.

Oriel Myrddin Gallery issued a call for film submissions, in response to the subject of “my place”. The selected films by eight artists, all either living or working in Wales, offer a varied interpretation on the subject. There is integrity and depth in the selection - some offer a strong sense of personal insight and reflection, some a sense of journey, some reflect on a locality, some question identity and some define a relationship. The films are many things, sentimental, beautiful, troubling and touching, but all are a personal exploration on the subject of “my place”.
