GLAM’D OUT Sat 17 until Sat 31 July, TactileBOSCH, Llandaff North, Cardiff Admission: free. Info: The name of this exhibition is very much to be taken as a pun: the 15 artists featured here have scant artistic relationship with the glam- orous, to the extent that you could believe it to be outside their sphere of imagination. They are all recent art graduates from the University Of Glamorgan, you see, but despite their relative youth, subjects which warrant gravity – “the re- alities of death, pain, loss, grief, horror, beauty, love, wonder and humour” is how they put it – are approached with wise aesthetic heads. Painting, collage, ceramics, sculpture and installation all feature, differing media utilised in grotesque, disturbing and beautiful ways, or a combination of all three.
