Visions Season - Visions of the past and future

Visions as a concept speaks of imagination, experience and the way we see the world and the effects of this can be seen no more clearly than in the work of contemporary artists today. For the 2017 Plymouth Contemporary, the selected artists have explored the theme ‘Visions’ in all its forms, from political to social, utopian to dystopian and more, and is representative of the turbulent social and political landscape today.

No Fixed Rules Four Films Inspired by Malcolm Le Grice

The Malcolm Le Grice, Presents Moments and Passing Time exhibition previously on display at Peninsula Arts, Plymouth University and Plymouth Arts Centre inspired students to create No Fixed Rules: Four Films Inspired by Malcolm Le Grice.

Over the course of four afternoon workshops, six schoolchildren from High View School in Efford, Plymouth, worked with Allister Gal, Lecturer in Media Arts at Plymouth University and Take A Part to develop four films.

Experimentation, freedom and fun was core to the project. At the premiere in Efford, with Malcolm in attendance, the student filmmakers said that the project gave them the self-confidence to collaborate and play.
