Axisweb Highlights the Contemporary Art Scene Across Wales

A new digital publication - Notes from Wales - is online now, telling you all you need to know about a contemporary art scene that has never felt more dynamic, ambitious and cohesive. 

Cardiff Contemporary, the first ever citywide festival of contemporary art, is already underway in the capital city, while Artes Mundi, the UK's biggest art prize, opens its doors to the public on 24 October 2014. And away from the big centres of population, there's an enormous amount happening too.

Let Axisweb's new digital publication take you on a whirlwind tour of the people, galleries and artist-led initiatives that make Wales such an exciting place to be.
