Exhibition
Angharad Williams: Picture the Others

Picture the Others is the first institutional solo exhibition by Welsh artist and writer Angharad Williams. This new commission will consist of a large-scale installation presented across MOSTYN’s gallery spaces and will include film, painting, sculpture, and text. Williams's practice reflects on the relationship between the individual and wider societal structures. The exhibition will be accompanied by live elements such as a performance and workshops in addition to the project titled The Wig that will include film, writing and publishing by the artist and other contemporary artists.

Angharad Williams is an artist living in Ynys Môn and Berlin. Recent solo exhibitions include High Horse, Kevin Space, Vienna (2021); Without the Scales, Schiefe Zähne, Berlin (2020); Witness, Haus Zur Liebe, Schaffhausen, Switzerland (2019); Island Mentality, Peak, London (2019); and Scarecrows, LISZT, Berlin (2018). Her work has been included in numerous group exhibitions including: Jerwood Arts, London (2021), Stadtgalerie Bern (2021) and Kunstverein Munich (2020). Performances have taken place at KW Institute for Contemporary Art, Berlin (2020); ICA, London (2019); and Radiophrenia, Glasgow (2017).

Online programme
McKenzie Wark podcast series: The Artist-Publisher
February 1–5, 2022  

In this podcast series, writer McKenzie Wark talks to artists who are also publishers and publishers whose work is a kind of art practice. Zines and books, made cheaply or by the thousands, or web-based journals available for free—these seem antithetical to the unique work of art. And yet the creation of meaning around art practices requires this other kind of practice of publishing written works. Contributors include Jacqueline de Jong and GB Jones amongst others. 

McKenzie Wark is the author, among other things, of Philosophy for Spiders: on the low theory of Kathy Acker (Duke University Press 2021) and The Beach Beneath the Street: the Everyday Life and Glorious Times of the Situationist International (Verso 2011). She is professor of culture and media at The New School in New York City.

Writing commissions
Starting in September 2021 and completing in February 2022, MOSTYN has a series of writing commissions by contemporary writers and poets such as Roy Claire PotterDylan HuwReba Maybury and Nat Raha.

Exhibitions currently on view
Jacqueline de Jong: The Ultimate Kiss

Until February 6, 2022

Jacqueline de Jong is considered one of the crucial artistic figures of the post-war avant-garde and this exhibition will be the first solo presentation of her work in a UK institution. Throughout her career, spanning over half a century, de Jong has developed a unique painterly practice. Expressive in style, her work exhibits uninhibited eroticism, violence and humour. In parallel to her work as a painter, she was editor of The Situationist Times (1962–1967) and a member of the Situationist International during her early years in Paris in the 1960s. 

Jacqueline de Jong is an artist born in 1939 in Hengelo, The Netherlands. She lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. 

Curated by Juliette Desorgues (Curator of Visual Arts, MOSTYN) and organised in collaboration with WIELS where the exhibition is presented by Devrim Bayar (Curator, WIELS) and Xander Karskens (Director, De Ateliers) (May 1–August 15, 2021). The exhibition will tour to the Kunstmuseum Ravensburg, Germany (March 12–June 19, 2022). 

The exhibition is accompanied by a catalogue published by Fonds Mercator with texts by Devrim Bayar, Juliette Desorgues, Alison Gingeras, Xander Karskens, Annabelle Ténèze and Niña Weijers.

Supported by The Mondriaan Fund, The Tyrer Charitable Trust, Pippy Houldsworth Gallery, The Dutch Embassy, London, Dürst Britt & Mayhew, Gallery. 

Anathemata
Until February 6, 2022

Anathemata is a study in corporeal epic poetry within a triad of 20th century avant-garde artists, Antonin Artaud, Pierre Guyotat, David E. Jones and Sarah Kane whose narratives tell of war and desire, personal fragmentation and transcendence, disfiguration and cataclysmic incantation. Their work will be interlaced through a display of manuscripts, drawings, sound and video and presented in dialogue with works by contemporary artists such as Martin Bladh, Paul-Alexandre Islas, James Richards and Karolina Urbaniak. The exhibition title is borrowed from David E. Jones’s eponymous poem published in 1952. Considered Jones’ seminal work, Anathemata narrates the thought processes of a cambrophile over the span of roughly seven seconds at an English Catholic Mass using old, middle and early modern English, Welsh, and Latin, moving freely between Iron Age Cornwall, Tudor London, Penda's Mercia or the Welsh “Otherworld.” 

Curated by Pierre-Alexandre Mateos and Charles Teyssou, a curatorial duo based in Paris, France. 

Supported by Fluxus Arts Projects and The Moondance Foundation.
