Since opening its doors in June 2000 in a converted 200-year-old former laundry house,tactileBOSCH Gallery & Studios has developed into one of the main players in the Welsh Arts scene with an impressive back catalogue and experimental approach. The venue was established by artists Kim Fielding and Simon Mitchell and has received support through the years from Cardiff based artists and curators such as Andrew Cooper, Jan Bennett, Mike Murray, Tim Bromage, Tom Harrup, Graham Phillips, Phillip Babot, Sam Aldridge, Neil Jefferies and Dave Shepherd as well as organizations such as National Probation Service, Arts Council of Wales, Culture Colony, & UWIC.
Spread over three buildings the galleries vision is to bring a selection of established international artists to the Welsh capitol as well as provide a platform for emerging local artists to showcase their practice. As an alternate gallery space, tactileBOSCH is adaptable, almost chameleonic in its nature. The vast, naturally lit space transforms to adopt the character of each show and puts no parameters on the placement of the work, giving the artists the opportunity to exhibit and experiment in a way that is not always possible within a more traditional gallery or theatre structure. This ability to transform itself has resulted in a living, breathing environment, capable of producing a complex dialogue between artist, curator, gallery, location and audience.
