The Power of Place
A day of presentations to accompany the exhibition
Romanticism in the Welsh Landscape
Saturday 21 May 2016, 10.30–16.30
The Welsh landscape has been a source of inspiration for visionary works of art from the 1760s to today. This day-conference will explore responses to the landscape in the works of writers and artists who travelled in Wales from the late eighteenth century to the present.
Hosted at MOMA Machynlleth in collaboration with the Curious Travellers project at the University of Wales Centre for Advanced Welsh and Celtic Studies (CAWCS), this is one of a series of events to accompany the major exhibition Romanticism in the Welsh Landscape. Some sixty paintings, drawings and multi-media works from public and private collections allow viewers to explore the seminal role of Wales in the origin and renewal of Romanticism, from the late eighteenth century to the present.
