THE EXCHANGE PROJECT
New British Art is pleased to announce the commencement of the Exchange project. Funded by the Arts Council of Wales, this first Exchange will enable recent graduate Anna Hayes to work alongside Mark Halliday over a period of 8 weeks at Cilyrynys Farm, culminating in an exhibition of their work during the summer. A subsidised bronze casting workshop will also take place during this period. The project will help to cement the group's base at the farm and mark the start of a developing residential studio and exhibiting facility there.
More information to follow shortly!
