Project Launch: 6 – 8pm
Dawn Woolley in conversation with Paul Cabuts: 6.30 – 7.30pm
At Turner House / Free / Booking recommended
To mark the launch of Dawn Woolley’s new project, Consumer, taking place across Cardiff city centre, Ffotogallery will be hosting an conversation event between Dawn and Dr Paul Cabuts, Associate Head of the School of Art and Design in the University of South Wales. They will explore the themes of the artwork, discussing consumerism, visual culture and the commercial realm as a site for artistic intervention.
Refreshments will be provided by Dawn Woolley and Ellen Sampson. Woolley and Sampson collaborate to produce celebratory snacks that play with conventional food messages about gender, desire and restriction. In response to Consumer they will play with the contradictory messages of capitalism that implore us to indulge while warning us against excess.
Consumer examines the influence of consumerism on the visual landscape. Details of the project will be posted in the coming months at:

To accompany each exhibition, the gallery hosts evening and weekend discussion events, ‘in-conversations’ or ‘walk and talks’ with the exhibiting artists and guest speakers. These are free to attend and are a great way to learn more about the artworks in the gallery, how they have been made and the wider context of the work.
