Plymouth Contemporary Open Announcement

KARST is excited to continue its partnership with The Arts Institute and The Box, Plymouth, for the Plymouth Contemporary open 2021.

We invite artists to submit up to two artworks for consideration in response to the theme of ‘Making It’. Open up, interrogate, unpick and shake out what it means to ‘make it’ in your contemporary art practice.

This open submission exhibition encourages and supports new ideas and a risk-taking approach across all art forms.

KARST I Am My Own Primal Parent

KARST’s commitment to equality

KARST believes in art’s capacity to bring people from diverse backgrounds together to exchange ideas, create work, share practices and give people a voice to contest the prejudices in our society.

We embrace the values of inclusivity, diversity, accessibility and equality so we support the Black Lives Matter movement and stand in solidarity with those challenging outdated attitudes and systems.

We take our role as an influencer of Plymouth’s cultural identity seriously and will maximise our efforts to ensure the voices of underrepresented members of our society are heard.
