MOSTYN Open 18
12 Vaughan Street, Llandudno
LL30 1AB Wales, UK
Hours: Tuesday–Sunday 10:30–5pm
Since its inception in 1989, MOSTYN Open has functioned as a call-out to artists of any age and residing place to enter, with an exhibition of the selected artworks taking place at MOSTYN, and a prize of 10,000 GBP awarded to a single artist or collective. While continuing in this tradition, this 18th edition will also bring a fundamental addition. A prize of 1,000 GBP will be given to the People’s Choice, determined by the artist who receives the most votes from the visiting public during the exhibition’s run. In doing so, the questions that are raised, and central to this renewed edition, are: How do we examine and judge artwork? What criteria do we bring to perceiving, interpreting and understanding artwork? What really makes our favourite? Visitors are invited to make their selection at the People’s Choice voting booth.

Meredith Danuck’s North of South, West of East
MEREDITH DANLUCK – SUNDANCE
Meredith Danluck is an artist and filmmaker working in New York and Los Angeles. She has exhibited at the Liverpool Biennial, Museo Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, MoMA PS1, and Venice Biennale and has a major film installation coming up at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit (MOCAD). She has also screened films at a number of festivals, including the Toronto International Film Festival, SXSW, Byron Bay International Film Festival, Hamburg International Short Film Festival, and Margaret Mead Film Festival.
North of South, West of East enhances narrative storytelling by wrapping the film around the entire room. Presented in a 20-seat theatre with swivel chairs, Meredith Danluck’s remarkable four-channel narrative feature deftly unspools a darkly humorous tale of small-town folks as they try to make sense of a posthope America. Shot on location in Detroit, Michigan, and Marfa, Texas, this unique film features fantastic performances by Ben Foster, Stella Schnabel, and Sue Galloway, and a soundtrack by Marfa local punk band Solid Waste. – S.
