Caravan Gallery - Cardiff Pride of Place Project

To complement their major touring exhibition, extra{ordinary} - Photographs of Britain by The Caravan Gallery, at Diffusion Festival, artists Jan Williams and Chris Teasdale are transforming The Abacus art space in central Cardiff’s Wood Street into a dynamic art exhibition-cum-alternative visitor information centre exploring Cardiff in all its multifaceted glory. The Cardiff Pride of Place Project invites visitors to define where - and how - they live in the 21st century, through research conducted in the spirit of ‘Mass Observation’. The exhibition will open with photos of Cardiff by The Caravan Gallery as a catalyst to get people talking, and selected images from an open submission photography competition. Visitors can contribute by sharing their views about Cardiff, past, present and future, and using their creative talents - writing, photography, drawing, video, sculpture, singing, knitting, whatever - to help produce a wonderfully anarchic and refreshingly honest exhibition-cum-alternative-tourist-information-centre celebrating the city and its character. The exhibition will grow daily as observations, little known facts and Cardiff-related ephemera are added to The People’s Map and The People’s Wall. Looking for America in Cardiff is another theme. The project will end with a closing celebration and a commemorative publication will follow.
