The award winning Aberystwyth Arts Centre is the largest and busiest arts centre in Wales, with a wide-ranging programme of events and activities across all art forms. It is recognised as a national centre for arts development. We welcome over 500,000 visitors a year through our doors, including over 72,000 attendances to our unique community arts and education programme.

The Arts Centre is a department of the University of Wales Aberystwyth, and sits at the heart of the university's campus, with stunning views over the town of Aberystwyth and along the coastline of Cardigan Bay.

In 2000 the Arts Centre completed a major £4.3 million redevelopment project which was largely funded by the National Lottery. We now have facilities unrivalled throughout much of the UK - and are recognised as a 'national flagship for the arts'.

Artist Rooms: Robert Mapplethorpe

  • 8 August — 7 November 2015

For its first project with ARTIST ROOMS, Aberystwyth Arts Centre will present an exhibition of Robert Mapplethorpe’s photography. Mapplethorpe is recognised as one of the key artists of the late 20th century and the Centre is delighted to be able to bring this outstanding collection of his work to its audiences. Encompassing self portraits and portraits from throughout the artist’s career, as well as a selection of still life works, the exhibition will allow audiences in Wales to experience something of the quality and the range of Mapplethorpe’s extraordinary oeuvre.

The exhibition will be accompanied by an innovative learning and participation programme to engage and develop audiences throughout the showing period, which will include events instigated and directed by young people from the area.
