Gangnam style has taken the art world by storm.

After Ai Weiwei made his own version of the Gangnam style dance, it was swiftly made inaccessible to people in China. So one of the most important British artists has made his own Gangnam style dance in support of the Chinese dissident artist. Anish Kapoor got some of the most prominent names in the art world together in London to ‘dance in support’ of their Chinese colleague.

So where is the cutting edge art in Cardiff? Where is the support for local artists in South Wales? I went on a journey to find out…

I went to the opening of the exhibition ‘Birth, Death and Hereafter’ by Cardiff’s Modern Alchemists. The model of this exhibition is great, supported and organised by students for emerging artists in the city. It is another much needed forum for up and coming artists to be able to show their work. For a review of the show, visit Crack Magazine, or Modern Alchemists for information for any artists out there reading this.
