Details

The museum's collections belong to everyone, but only a small number of people normally make decisions about what is collected and how it is displayed. Is this fair?

Who Decides? is curated by service users from The Wallich, a charity supporting people who have experienced homelessness in Wales.

Contemporary Art for Everybody. The art work in Who Decides? has been selected from the large collection of paintings, sculptures, films, prints and drawings that the Museum and the Derek Williams Trust have acquired over the last 10 years.

Featured artists include Anthony Caro, Olga Chernysheva, Richard Deacon, Laura Ford, Richard Long, Paula Rego, Clare Woods and Bedwyr Williams.

The exhibition also features an installation of over 70 ceramic works from the private collection of the gallery owner Anita Besson (1933-2015). This outstanding collection, bequeathed to the Derek Williams Trust in 2016, features work by 13 makers including Lucie Rie, Hans Coper, Ryoji Koie and Claudi Casanovas and will be displayed together in the exhibition for the first time.

You can also contribute to Who Decides? by voting for your favourite work to be ‘released’ from the store and placed on public display.
