Artangel At Sea is an exciting programme of artists’ films and talks taking place at Plymouth Arts Centre to celebrate Plymouth’s Marine City Festival 2012. It includes an exhibition of material from the Artangel archive.
Artangel has become renowned for commissioning and producing some of the most significant contemporary art in recent years, working with international artists including Francis Alÿs, Douglas Gordon, Gregor Schneider and Rachel Whiteread.
In a year that has seen Artangel perch a boat on the roof of the Southbank Centre and launch an exhibition by Lindsay Seers in a tin tabernacle loaded with maritime history, 2012 is the perfect moment for Artangel to wash ashore in Plymouth.
For this unique collaboration, Plymouth Arts Centre presents three works from The Artangel Collection. Collectively they address communities ridden with conflict, exploring the boundary between drama and documentary to create works of extraordinary imagination and power.
