BRITISH ART SHOW 9
Congratulations to Plymouth and all us lovers of contemporary fine art in the South West as the UK’S largest touring exhibition of contemporary British Art heads to the city again in 2021.
Plymouth will join Manchester, Wolverhampton and Aberdeen for the ninth iteration of this prestigious exhibition, which takes place only once every five years and showcases new and recent works by British-based contemporary artists.
In Plymouth, the exhibition will be led by The Box with a range of other city venues also expected to take part.
Plymouth hosted British Art Show 7 in 2011 when more than 75,000 visits were made to the exhibition with another estimated 15,000 people taking part in the associated event, education and Fringe programmes. The artists for British Art Show 9 will be confirmed at a later date but works on display will include painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, video, film and performance.
