British Art Show is a landmark touring exhibition that celebrates the vitality of recent art made in Britain. Plymouth first hosted this significant national exhibition ten years ago. This iteration brings different themes into focus in each city. In Plymouth, it centres on the migration of people, plants, objects, ideas and forms.
Experience works in a range of mediums including painting, photography, sculpture, installation and film by a selection of top British artists all produced between 2015 and 2022, a period that begins with Britain voting to leave the European Union and closes with the still unfolding Covid-19 pandemic.
British Art Show is the largest touring exhibition of contemporary art in the UK, giving people in cities across the country the opportunity to engage with work by the most exciting artists in Britain.
British Art Show 9 will be delivered in partnership with Plymouth Culture and shown across four venues: The Box, KARST, The Levinsky Gallery at the University of Plymouth and MIRROR at Plymouth College of Art.
The exhibition is curated by internationally respected curators Irene Aristizábal and Hammad Nasar and is produced by Hayward Gallery Touring, in collaboration with curators at each of the host cities.
From immersive animations and cutting-edge fashion design to contemporary illustration and timeless glass and ceramics, creative graduates are preparing to take over sites across the city with a host of exhibitions and showcases, part of Arts University Plymouth’s season of 2022 Summer Shows the IGNITE Festival of Creativity.
