This exhibition shows how artists have pursued a shared purpose: to push, subvert, question and reimagine what art can be. Bringing together works from over five hundred years over a plethora of disciplines it poses questions about representation, identity and culture.

A breadth of historic, modern and contemporary art works from Amgueddfa Cymru’s collections will be showcased, grouping many works that have never been shown together before, introducing new relationships and highlighting some of the contemporary social issues faced today.

Works by featured artists such as Rembrandt, Thomas Jones, Pablo Picasso, Gwen John, Bedwyr Williams, Caroline Walker and Clementine Schneidermann will be joined by Vertigo Sea by John Akomfrah which was acquired with support from Art Fund.
