Art Across The City 2013, Swansea
6th September – 6th October 2013

Thirteen artworks will be seen across the city for Art Across The City 2013, Swansea. Six have been newly commissioned in 2013 and seven are permanent.

The new commissions include Jacob Dahlgren’s abstract placards taking over the Amphitheatre following a procession through the city; Juneau Projects have placed idiosyncratic symbols high in the trees in Singleton Park to attract passers by; Laura Sorvala’s unique drawings cover a plinth-like object on the Princess Way illustrating people’s thoughts on a future Swansea and Matthew Houlding’s large modernist monument sits in front of the Guildhall, mirroring the renovated tower. These join two commissions from Spring 2013, Pete Fowler’s iconic work opposite the train station and Sinta Tantra’s palm trees on the High Street.

Seven permanent LOCWS International commissions further support the 2013 programme. These include works by artists, Sean Puleston; Rik Bennett, Bristow Lloyd, Bedwyr Williams, Bermingham and Robinson, Mark Folds and Niamh McCann.
