The British Art Show is a touring exhibition that celebrates the vitality of recent art made in Britain. British Art Show 9 takes a critical look at art produced from 2015 to the present moment, a period that begins with Britain voting to leave the European Union and closes with the still unfolding Covid-19 pandemic. Plymouth first hosted the British Art Show ten years ago. This iteration brings different themes into focus in each city, and in Plymouth it centres on the migration of people, plants, objects, ideas and forms.
The exhibition will be delivered in partnership with Plymouth Culture and shown across four venues: KARST, The Box, The Levinsky Gallery at the University of Plymouth and MIRROR at Plymouth College of Art.
