When is British Art Show 9 in Plymouth?

What to expect from British Art Show 9 in Plymouth

British Art Show 9 will be on display at The Box; KARST; the Levinsky Gallery at the University of Plymouth and MIRROR at Arts University Plymouth.

The British Art Show is a blockbuster exhibition held every 5 years to showcase and celebrate the work of some of Britain’s most exciting artists.

37 artists will bring their work to Plymouth following extensive research by curators Irene Aristizábal and Hammad Nasar. They include Turner Prize winners and bursary recipients and artists who have represented Britain at the prestigious Venice Biennale. Many of the artists have developed new works for the exhibition which includes sculpture, film, installation, performance, painting and photography.

British Art Show 9 will explore 3 overarching themes: healing, care and reparative history; tactics for togetherness; and imagining new futures. All 3 were devised before the COVID-19 pandemic and 2020s Black Lives Matter protests but are now more relevant than ever.

A large-scale programme of events will take place while the exhibition is on display, including talks, tours, film screenings, family activities and special events.
