Not everyone’s aware that 2021 has been designated the year of Wales in Germany! https://www.wales.com/wales-in-germany-2021 with a series of events planned to take place in both countries.
Having moved back to Wales in 2019 I am keen for my new home town of Abergavenny to be part of this celebration. It’s not the ideal time during a pandemic to be thinking of such a thing! However in the spirit of friendship and post-Brexit collaboration I’m in the early stages of curating a cultural project between Abergavenny and it’s twin Östringen in Germany.
My high level plan is to curate an exhibition of contemporary art (painting, photography, mixed media & sculpture) by professional artists based in Abergavenny to be shown in Östringen in the Autumn/Winter 2021, and for the exhibition to return and be shown in Abergavenny in the spring 2022.
