Extraordinary Days

(Edited version of) film by Chris Keenan about exhibition Extraordinary Days at Oriel Davies Gallery, Newtown, Wales in 2009.

The exhibition focussed on ‘positivity and humour in contemporary art’ and featured work by ‘fifteen internationally acclaimed and emerging artists from Wales and beyond,’ including Dave Ball, Jordan Baseman, Oliver Bragg, Maia Conran, Martin Creed, Peter Finnemore, Paul Granjon, Andrew Grassie, Richard Higlett, Hiraki Sawa, Jack Strange, Boyd Webb, Richard Wentworth, Bill Woodrow and Bedwyr Williams.

It was organised by the Oriel Davies Young Curators – a group of fourteen young people based in mid Wales, aged between 16 and 23: Aishah, Becca, Caitlin, Claudia, Kelly, Kirsty, Laura, Nia, Sarah, Stephanie, Sophie, Rachael, Rhian and Rhys.

Chris Keenan’s original film has been adapted to include only material pertaining to my own work.
