Event Details

We The People Are The Work is a major visual arts project in Plymouth that explores ideas of power, protest and the public curated by Simon Morrissey.

The project will build connections between the people of Plymouth and five internationally renowned artists through structures that involve people living in Plymouth in generating the ideas and artworks in the exhibition alongside the artists.

Antonio Macotela and Eduardo Thomas’ multidisciplinary practices often engage particular communities such as prison inmates, soldiers or miners and draw on the history of experimental film and documentary strategies respectively.

In their new commission the Mexican artists team-up to explore notions of representation, identity, visibility, through working with local residents who took part as extras in Tim Burton’s 2010 version of Alice in Wonderland, parts of which were shot in Plymouth.

Peninsula Arts at Plymouth University hosts the largest contemporary art gallery in Plymouth and delivers a significant programme at the cutting-edge of global contemporary art including exhibitions, film, theatre, dance, music and talks.

Exhibition runs 22/23/24 September and continues after the Weekender till 18/11/2017
