Challenging sculptures on Western Attitudes on Islam

It is undoubtedly challenging to have a good exhibition using "sculpture to explore Western attitudes towards Islam."

Challenging sculptures on display at gallery

Jan 24, 2008. A LEADING Welsh artist has been showcasing his “powerful and challenging” exhibition since it made its debut at the Cynon Valley Museum and Gallery on January 19.

David Garner’s exhibition, entitled 'Whatever They Say I Am, That’s What I’m Not', uses sculpture to explore Western attitudes towards Islam.

His work tackles issues such as asylum-seeking, racism and Islamophobia – subjects other artists have been accused of shying away from. ...

The display, which is supported by The Arts Council of Wales, will run at the Cynon Valley Museum and Gallery until March 15.
