Plymouth Art Weekender 2020 Events

No Soap Radio is a street photography collective created by a group of friends to share analogue photos of the oddities they encounter daily. The images have no consistent theme, planning, or any order at all: they are purely opportunistic. The thread that draws the group together is skateboarding in Plymouth but NSR looks beyond that to places and characters encountered along the way. This exhibition follows the completion of a 150-metre mural on the hoardings of Plymouth’s empty Civic Building by the Youth Committee of Prime Skatepark, Cattedown, which was curated by KARST’s Head of Creative Programme, Ben Borthwick. The exhibition runs 18-27 Sept (11:00-17:00) with a live event on Saturday 26 Sept (17:00-21:00) featuring a skate jam and DJ set. Get your Eventbrite tickets here. Social distancing measures are in force and unfortunately, KARST is not currently accessible by wheelchair because of building work.

In the Future We Will

No New Worlds installation asks us to consider our past and future

A panel discussion with Ben Borthwick, KARST’s head of Creative Programming and Paula Orrell, coordinator, Visual arts South West which will use the framework provided by Speedwell – an ACE/Plymouth Culture commission made by artist’s collective Still/Moving in response to the complexity of commemorating the 400th anniversary of the sailing of the Mayflower. Challenging accepted histories, behaviours and knowledge systems offers the possibility in this moment to consider, design and activate ‘new’ forms of ‘worlding’
