Wales' Sam Perry Curates New York Show

Wales' Sam Perry Curates New York Show

Curator Sam Perry will be presenting his first stateside show of film, photography and performance from Wales and America this October. His show The Loneliness of the Long Distance Runner will be the culmination of three months at Flux Factory, Queens as their curator in residence. This has been supported by Wales Arts International through our International Opportunities Fund. The show will also feature a specially commissioned performance from Wales' own Kathryn Ashill.

The show is based a single found photograph and the stories behind it: the image of gold winning British athlete Wyndham Halswelle at the 1908 London Olympics. When London hosted the Games the first time Wyndham was part of an international incident between Great Britain and the US.

Sam's show will be at Flux Factory from the 5th to the 12th of October and will feature work Adrian Owen, Alex Wolkowicz, Angela Jimenez, Blue MacAskill, Chris Domenick, Jonathan Thomas, Kathryn Ashill, Kerry Downey, Louise Barry, and Tom Pope.
