What's on in November 2016

What’s on in November 2016

New at Newport Museum and Art Gallery!

Respond by David Garner, 4.11.2016 – 14.1.2017

In Respond, David Garner presents two works that are intrinsically linked and inspired by a coin in the Museum’s Chartism exhibition engraved with the words 'Frost' and 'set him free'. Pennies for the People (2015) is a chandelier, a symbol of decadence and associated with opulent lifestyles, however in this instance it is constructed from coins with a monetary value of a mere £11.52. Presented in the Art Gallery is Call and Response (2015), a video inspired by the one-off installation Pennies for the People, with the improvised harp response by Rhodri Davies at the Chartist Cave, Llangyndir.
