Artes Mundi is an internationally-focused arts organisation that identifies, recognises and supports contemporary visual artists who engage with the human condition, social reality and lived experience. Founded in 2002 by Welsh artist William Wilkins, Artes Mundi is best known for its biennial international exhibition and prize which takes place in Cardiff. The exhibition is Wales’s biggest and most exciting contemporary visual art show. One of the shortlisted artists is awarded the prize of £40,000, the largest art prize in the UK and one of the most significant in the world.
Midas PR was appointed by Artes Mundi in 2014 to bring their 6th biennial prize to the mainstream media. The agency has since been retained to promote Artes Mundi 7 which will open to the public in October 2016.
