We are now open! Pop in to the gallery Wednesday – Saturday 12-5pm to take a look at our new exhibition What is lost… what has been, featuring works by John Paul Evans. We also have a whole line up of events planned over the next couple of months, so watch this space.

We are delighted to announce that from July Cynthia Sitei will be joining the Ffotogallery team permanently in a new development role as Curator. Working with the Director, Cynthia will focus on researching and developing our exhibition programme. Cynthia joined Ffotogallery in 2021 as Creative Producer after being awarded a Weston Jerwood creative bursary. Since then she has led on the curation and production of several successful projects including More Than a Number and Where’s My Space?, becoming an invaluable member of the team.

Earlier this month Cynthia was selected to join the British Art Network (BAN) and the Yale Center for British Art (YCBA) international curatorial forum. The select group of up to 12 participants will experience a week long residency in New Haven, USA in October.

BAN announced: “With an emphasis on collective learning, exploratory thinking, sharing and reflection, the Forum will be a unique opportunity to explore the histories, present experience and future of British art curating, forge new professional connections, and enjoy privileged access to the exceptional collections and resources of the Yale Center for British Art.”

The Domestic Space in Photography & Art
Thursday 28 July, 6-8pm

In conjunction with our current exhibition, we are delighted to be hosting a panel discussion on Thursday 28th July, examining the domestic space in photography and art.

Working with his partner Peter, John Paul Evans uses performative portraiture, still life and collage to reimagine domestic and public spaces. From carefully constructed, detailed images to mindful documentations of cloudscapes, the work is both collectively playful and poignantly tender.

We would love you to join us for an evening of stimulating conversation between 6 - 8pm in our beautiful gallery space in Cathays. Booking is recommended but not essential.

This open call is for artists and collectives who use their art to create and develop bodies of work that express their views and opinions about belonging and inclusions.

This project is part of the British Council's newly announced India/UK Together Season of Culture, which celebrates the long-standing relationship between the two.
