Visiting Artists

Avant-garde fashion house Boudicca open their exhibition in The Gallery, 2014.

Since 2011 The Gallery at Plymouth College of Art has been running a free, weekly events programme which is open to all students, staff and the wider public.

Events include artist/curator talks, performances, screenings, and workshops and tend to take place regularly on a Wednesday evening at the college. Previously to this, the Exhibitions team ran an internal visiting artist talks programme for students and staff.

Below is a list of the fantastic artists and curators who have delivered a talk, run a workshop or presented a performance at the college.
