ArtesMundi – Chapter


With presenting partner the Bagri Foundation, Artes Mundi 10 (AM10), the UK’s leading biennial exhibition and international contemporary art prize, will for the first time present seven international contemporary visual artists across five venue partners in Wales for its tenth anniversary edition. Taking place from 20 October 2023 to 25 February 2024, the winner of the prestigious £40,000 Artes Mundi Prize – the UK’s largest contemporary art prize – will be announced during the exhibition run.

AM10 will see each artist present a major solo project, including new productions, unseen works and several UK premieres. Some artists are presenting across multiple venues, whilst every artist will have work at a location in Cardiff.

Naomi Rincón Gallardo who is exhibiting in Chapter, lives and works in Oaxaca, México. As part of her presentation for AM10, we provide the UK premiere of the ‘Tzitzimime Trilogy’ of video works – Verses of Filth (2021), Sonnet of Vermin (2022) and Eclipse (2023) – which explore Mesoamerican myths as alternatives to hegemonic ways of understanding reality, interweaving fact, fiction and friction in order to create a place between radical utopian experiences and surreal fantasy.
