Cardiff Contemporary is a Cardiff Council initiative co–funded by the Arts Council of Wales, developed in partnership with Cardiff’s visual art, design and architecture communities. I would like to personally thank everyone who is working together to support the vision and delivery of Cardiff Contemporary and the development of the visual arts in Cardiff.
