Dialogues on Conflict is a series of seminars that took place across Wales in the 6 months leading up to Artes Mundi 6 exhibition and prize. The dialogues introduced some of the themes that are explored by the Artes Mundi 6 shortlisted artists.
Artes Mundi 6 includes the work of 9 outstanding international artists: Carlos Bunga, Karen Mirza and Brad Butler, Omer Fast, Theaster Gates, Sanja Iveković, Ragnar Kjartansson, Sharon Lockhart, Renata Lucas & Renzo Martens and The Institute for Human Activities.
The three seminars took place in partnership with universities and galleries across Wales beginning at Dynevor campus, University of Wales, Trinity St David, Swansea followed by MOSTYN, Llandudno and Oriel Davies Gallery, Newtown.
