TROY HOUSE MONMOUTH
The Troy House Art Foundation space in Monmouth, Wales has just started preparation in 2020 as the hub for its activities. Its complicated, multi-levelled histories, with the diverse stories of life and power that have revolved around it, form a time-tunnel that echoes aspects of profound political, cultural, social, economic, and ethical transformations that are still in process today. Such currents also impact on the complexity, and at times the perplexity, of contemporary intercultural exchange.
In 1952 Troy House’s buildings and grounds were Grade II* listed as of special historical interest. They will now be conserved and restored in stages to provide exhibition and performance spaces, residencies, studios and workshops, suites for conferences and discussions, and a Research and Exhibition Centre for both the Asian Moving Image and the idea of social activation through art.
