Plymouth Contemporary 2017

Selected artists

15 July – 2 Sep 2017


A dual site exhibition at Peninsula Arts and KARST.

Now in its second year, the Plymouth Contemporary is an open submission exhibition, providing a platform for new, up and coming creative talent alongside artists working nationally and internationally.

The artists, selected by a panel of curators, art directors and artists were asked to respond to the theme ‘Visions’, a pertinent subject at a time when the world, on the surface at least, seems to be going through turbulent change. Artists have explored what the concept of ‘Visions’ might mean for us now – from the political and social, to alternative realities and other dimensions, imaginary or absurd, utopian or dystopian, concrete or literal.

With special thanks to our supporters Artmill Gallery & Framing Centre, Bond Dickinson and Francis May Favata, Sculptor
