In this week’s episode we speak to Huw Stephens—BBC Radio Wales presenter—and director Ian Jones about the upcoming BBC series The Story of Welsh Art. The series explores the rich history of visual arts in Wales, beginning in the Neolithic period and examining key periods and forms which have shaped Wales’s artistic legacy. We ask Huw and Ian about Welsh art on an international scale, about the richness of Welsh art, and ask why it is so important we get this story now.
In the second segment we discuss Rachel Mainwaring’s article ‘Ways of Protest | Exhibition’ and Mary Ann Steeples’ profile of Canadian artist Michelle Wilson in her piece ‘Michelle Wilson: Cleansing the Land’.
Finally, we’ll be letting you know about events across Wales that you’ll definitely want to check out our What’s on, Wales? Segment.
