Diffusion: Cardiff International Festival of Photography, Ffotogallery’s biennial city-wide celebration of world class photography and contemporary art, returns 1-31 May 2017 with a month long programme of exhibitions, events and activities.
Diffusion 2017 looks at ‘revolution’ in its widest context, investigating moments of social change, movements around freedom of expression, the pursuit of utopias, human rights and identity.
Dreamtigers is a new Ffotogallery project in which artists and cultural professionals from India and Wales collaborate around the making and presentation of new work that reflects how creativity, technology and a renewed sense of national identity are shaping the lives of future generations in a globalised society.
Dreamtigers brings us together with the Nazar Foundation/Delhi Photo Festival creating reciprocal opportunities for artists and creative professionals from India and Wales to travel to and work in each other’s countries.
Land/Sea (Tir/Môr) is a major solo exhibition by Wales-based artist Mike Perry, presented by Ffotogallery. Perry’s work engages with significant and pressing environmental issues and the fragility of the planet’s ecosystems.
Bringing together key works from his Wet Deserts, Môr Plastig and Ffynnonofi series, Land/Sea (Tir/Môr) examines the negative impact of monocultural land use and how consumerism interacts with the erosive power of nature. Opening at Ffotogallery in October 2017, the exhibition travels to Mostyn and Aberystwyth Arts Centre in 2018.
