Art bite: The Sum and the Parts
  • Plymouth Arts Centre, Looe Street, Plymouth

Save event

The history of Avant-gardes is usually separated into art genres and while this makes for tidy narratives, the reality is that Avant-garde artists have always taken a more chaotic and expansive approach. Ben Borthwick, Artistic Director at Plymouth Arts Centre, will discuss how the social relationships between artists, musicians and others, results in interdisciplinary thinking and experimental breakthroughs.
