'UNCONVENTION' is an exhibition with a difference. It has been assembled by rock group the Manic Street Preachers on the theme of love and revolution. The show brings together paintings by Picasso and Jackson Pollock with posters from the Spanish Civil War and photographs of the work ers in the south Wales valleys.

'Unconvention' is designed to question accepted views of brutal and tragic events. In a refreshing change from the passive nature of most exhibitions, 'Uncon vention' doesn't simply portray the horror-it encourages resistance. Stalls for Amnesty International and the Campaign Against the Arms Trade share the exhibition space, and there are events planned for Human Rights Day.

'CONVENTION' is showing at the Centre for Visual Arts, Cardiff, until 16 January 2000.
