Visions season

Artists have long been associated with having visionary outlooks, whether inspired by dreams or questioning existing ideas, we have come to expect artists and creative thinkers to provide new ways of understanding and seeing the world. From the quiet, meditative drawings of the Thinking Tantra exhibition that traces the relationship between Indian Tantric art and aspects of Western abstract art, to the Words and Music Festival: The Roaring Twenties that explores the seismic cultural shifts that were happening across music, film and art at that time, this season explores visions in all its cultural forms. Our programmers and academic colleagues, working with Plymouth History Centre, have sought to bring together a vibrant programme of films, talks, exhibitions, performances and music events that open up new opportunities to engage with the visions, both historical and contemporary, that have changed the way we experience the world.
