as you like it - 12 November – 3 December

as you like it
an international photo exhibition

featuring guest curators
Farhad Bahram – Nóra Barabás – Isabelle Thibeault-Jolin

“as you like it” is the fifth photographic exhibition organised in Abertillery, Wales by the*kickplate*project. For this exhibition, apart from choosing photographs ourselves, we have also asked a group of international artists to select works for us to show in the gallery. Each artist has been given the opportunity to choose photographers and images to present on their own section of wall – our hope is to create 5 single exhibitions that add up to 1 featuring 10 photographers in all.

We have chosen artists Farhad Bahram (Iran), Nóra Barabás (Hungary) and Isabelle Thibeault-Jolin (Canada) to accompany us, the*kickplate*project (Zosia Krasnowolska - Poland and Dafydd Williams - Wales) because we thought it was a great way to discover and feature artists that we haven’t known or shown before and present them to our audience.

It’s an attempt to create a global exhibition that will show local people visiting our gallery what artists, in a wide variety of countries, are looking at and liking - so that they can feel part of an international art scene that may otherwise seem distant and hard to access, especially at a time when travelling is becoming harder due to tough economic circumstances.
