Got You Mouse, (2018) by Richard Broomhall

Exhibition: The Unknown Knowns 

If the known unknowns are the things we know that we don’t know, what don’t we know that we know?

Plymouth-based Curator, Vickie Fear, brings together artists using appropriated material in 'The Unknown Knowns' exhibition to expose hidden truths and ask questions about the world we live in. Starting with the work of three filmmakers commissioned by The Arts Institute in partnership with the SWFTA in 2018, 'The Unknown Knowns' makes connections between artists who draw from a range of sources, including public archives and popular culture.

This is a partnership exhibition delivered by The Arts Institute and The Box, Plymouth and is on display from Friday 29 March - Wednesday 22 May in The Levinsky Gallery. Find out more about the exhibition.
