Artist given funding to create…
an empty art gallery
An artist has been given a grant to put on an exhibition consisting of nothing but an empty gallery. Simon Pope, 40, said the aim was to encourage people to walk around the empty rooms and discuss memories of other galleries.
He said the work in Cardiff’s Chapter Arts Centre divided opinion, but some visitors had “got a lot out of it”.
It has been funded by the Arts Council of Wales and the Sciart Wellcome Trust, a charity promoting art and science.
