Dylan Huw

Dylan Huw is a writer living in Cardiff. His work across art criticism, essays and fiction, and in Welsh and English, is informed by an interest in processes of translation and vocabulary-making, collective practices and queer lineages.

Recent publications include commissioned texts with Artes Mundi, Occasional Groundwork (EVA International, Göteborg International Biennial for Contemporary Art + Lofoten International Art Festival), Mostyn and Dortmunder Kunstverein. Recent collaborative editing and curatorial projects include the first print issue of mwnwgl, a new platform for art/writing in and around Welsh languages; an issue of Cynfas, Amgueddfa Cymru/National Museum Wales’ digital magazine, on the theme ‘queer looking’; and ululations, a bilingual publication of new writing in response to Alberta Whittle’s Art Night 2021 exhibition with Peak Cymru, the Black Mountains-based contemporary art organisation where Dylan has been part of the creative team since Spring 2020. He has a BA in Liberal Arts from King’s College London (2017) and an MA in Contemporary Art Theory from Goldsmiths, University of London (2018).
