We The People Are The Work is a city-wide exhibition that
builds connections and collaborations between the people of Plymouth and
internationally renowned artists.
The city will be activated by a series of newly
commissioned artworks that question our engagement with politics and identity.
In the wake of recent global events, it asks what are the differences and
shared experiences that shape society?
The Peninsula Arts Gallery will display new works created
by Mexican artists José Antonio Vega Macotela and Eduardo Thomas whose work is multi-disciplinary
and often engages with particular communities. Across the
five venues, the exhibition will also include works from artists: Claire
Fontaine; Peter Liversidge; Ciara Phillips and Matt Stokes.
We The People Are The Work is curated by Simon Morrissey,
Director of Foreground, and presented by PVAPG (Plymouth Visual Art Programming
Group), a partnership between The Gallery at Plymouth College of Art, KARST,
Peninsula Arts at Plymouth University, Plymouth Arts Centre and The Box, Plymouth. It is part of Horizon, a collaborative two-year programme of
visual contemporary arts, funded through Arts Council England’s Ambition for
Excellence fund and led by Plymouth Culture.
Please note: unfortunately, due to issues in their native Mexico, Peninsula Arts has been forced to postpone the unveiling of Antonio Vega Macotela and Eduardo Thomas' exhibition which had been due to open on Saturday 16 September. It has now been rescheduled to open in the Peninsula Arts Gallery on Friday 22 September, at the same time as the other events forming part of the We The People Are The Work project.
Visit the We The People Are The Work Project Hub in the Peninsula Arts Gallery from Monday 18 September for more information about this major city project.
