National Museum Cardiff focuses on German artist Beuys

Joseph Beuys - one of the most influential figures in twentieth century art - is well known for the three days he spent in New York, sharing a room with a wild coyote in his ‘action’ I like America and America Likes Me 1974. Photographs of this event were even exhibited at the Wrexham Eisteddfod in 1977. This surprising connection between Beuys and Wales may well be linked to the artist’s longstanding interest in the survival of the Celtic spirit in Europe. This, together with Beuys’ central contribution to the development of postwar European art will be the focus of a new exhibition on display at National Museum Cardiff from 22 October. Beuys’ interest in the Celtic, and its particular relevance to audiences in Wales, is also explored in accompanying events and schools programme.
