Cardiff's National Museum and Gallery shows work by the contenders for the fourth Artes Mundi Prize. All the artists are emerging figures who have been exhibited at international exhibitions like the Venice & Sao Paulo Biennales and the Yokahama Triennial.
The work on display includes a variety of media, film and video installations and sculpture, exploring notions of history, identity and memory, the body and communication.
The first Artes Mundi Prize was awarded to Chinese artist Xu Bing in 2004. Two years later the second was awarded to Finnish artist Eija-Liisa Ahtila and in April 2008 N S Harsha won the third prize. The prize is worth £40,000 to the winner.
