Plymouth Art Weekender from September 25 to 27
Plymouth Art Weekender is an ambitious three-day celebration taking place across the city from September 25 to 27.
Organised as a pilot project by Visual Arts Plymouth, a group representing Plymouth's galleries and artists, the Weekender will promote Plymouth as a contemporary art destination.
The event will include a staggering 86 events and feature over 400 local, national and international artists.
Confirmed artist's exhibitions include the renowned Gerhard Richter; Tim Etchells' For Now; conceptual artist Gillian Wearing; graphic designer Ivan Chermayeff; Grayson Perry; Keith Harrison, Claire Twomey; and Bill Woodrow.
Empty spaces across the city will be filled to bursting with public art, talks, music, film, workshops, performance and following an open call for ideas.
Eloise Malone, director of Effervescent, Radiant Gallery and Rumpus Cosy is collaborating with Dawn Frogson, owner of Curio Junction, to put on an exhibition at Radiant called Paper Crowns.
The installation will examine materialism in society through the device of paper crowns, based on Robert Lenkiewicz's painting Mary, which will be worn by visitors to the event. They will then be able to play at being royalty while having their photo taken by Dom Moore Photography.
The drawings are made from an electrical corona discharge creating images drawn with light on paper charged with 150,000 volts of electricity.
