Behind a 1901 terracotta façade in Llandudno is Wales’ leading gallery of contemporary art, Mostyn. It has recently completed an expansion in which old and new buildings were integrated in a design by architect, Dominic Williams.
Peter Moores Foundation supported the main reopening show in 2010 , We Have The Mirrors, We Have The Plans which included work from twenty-five artists and artist partnerships. The exhibition provided an extensive picture of contemporary art practice in Wales and expressed a broad range of current concerns. The title comes from a text by Craig Wood,
"Does art reflect society? Is what art is today what society does tomorrow? Beware... We are the artists; we have the mirrors, we have the plans."
The Daily Telegraph
'The commitment to showing the best of contemporary art from elsewhere, inevitably a challenge for a relatively small gallery in rural Wales, is triumphantly fulfilled by the screening upstairs of one of the most memorable and surreally strange video installations of the last few years, Flooded McDonald’s by a collective of Danish artists who call themselves Superflex – a work that the Mostyn is not merely showing, but actually co-commissioned.
With its stunning coastal scenery, Llandudno is already one of the most picturesque places to visit in the British Isles. With the advent of the new Mostyn, its cultural landscape has also been hugely enhanced.'
