Young Plymouth Arts Centre are offering up their response to the British Art Show 7’s entry to and departure from the city with their Then There Was Sky… exhibition.
The title is taken randomly from HG Wells’ In The Days of the Comet novel, which inspired the title of British Art Show 7.
Random selection is a tactic used by the Young Plymouth Arts Centre group during their making process and as a focus for the exhibition.
Along with the exhibition there are a series of events planned, including: meeting other young curators and artist’s collectives from across the UK, working with artists and curators to discover what’s next for the art world and hosting public events that you can attend.
Then There Was Sky… is at the Plymouth Arts Centre from January 14 to February 26.
The artists taking part are Roxi Beville, Rhodri Brooks, Sammy Cowin, Joanna De Los Reyes, Ali Donkin, Bethie Helliwell, Daniel Jones, Hannah Jump, Ervin Martini, Hannah Pollard, Shona Ritchie, Katie Shaw, Daniella Snovakova, Sophie Troczynska, and Ana-Ciara Ulamoleka.
There is a launch part on Friday, January 13 at 7pm – entry free – with a performance by Hannah Pollard. Also, people are invited to bring along their own random mixed CD to play at the event.
