Forground Director Simon Morrissey to speak at We The People Are The Work

Foreground Director Simon Morrissey and curator of We The People Are The Work, a major visual arts project in Plymouth, will be speaking at Plymouth College of Art on Wednesday 11th October 2017.

Simon will discuss the curatorial influences and processes behind We The People Are The Work as well as previous projects as Director of Foreground.

We The People Are The Work is a project that explores ideas of power, protest, and the public. The project will build connections between the people of Plymouth and six internationally renowned artists through structures that involve ordinary people living in Plymouth in generating the ideas and artworks in the exhibitions alongside the artists. Venues across the city ranging from Plymouth City Council’s Council House to the city’s public galleries will be animated by a series of new commissioned artworks that explore our shared experiences and social differences that shape our society and our aspirations and fears for the future.

This event is free and open to staff, students and the wider public. Seats are limited and on a first come first serve basis.
