The Test Bed programme ran alongside the main exhibition programme at Oriel Davies from 2009 -2016 and was dedicated to showcasing new and experimental emergent work from Wales and the Borders.

TestBed occupies its own dedicated space at the Gallery, but also acts as a ‘conceptual space’ for artists to develop and show work that has a life beyond the physical constraints of the Gallery.
