9 July – 19 October 2018

The University of South Wales announced its summer exhibition, vis-à-vis. In celebration of the centenary of women’s suffrage, a selection of twenty images of women from its own Museum Collection have been paired with twenty images of women by contemporary artists from Wales.

Accompanying the exhibition is a conversation project that has taken place between the exhibition’s curator, Dr Frances Woodley, and each of the artists in which the paired works of art are considered in relation to one another. These conversations have brought new perspectives to works in the collection, and they, in turn have brought new understanding to artists’ current practice.
