Artist Talk: Simon Pope
  • Roland Levinsky Building, Plymouth University

Save event

For Walk On, artist Simon Pope has worked with Fine Art students in Plymouth to establish a walking club, whose first walk explored themes of participation, dialogue, negotiation and ‘openness’. 

In this talk Simon will draw on examples of his work to expand on these themes in relation to walking and contemporary art, as well as to the cultures of walking in upland areas such as Dartmoor.

Free admission - booking essential.

Walk On: From Richard Long to Janet Cardiff – 40 Years of Art Walking

This exhibition is being brought to Plymouth thanks to a partnership between Peninsula Arts, Plymouth University; Plymouth Arts Centre; Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery and Plymouth College of Art Gallery.

The exhibition gives an insight into the recent art practice of nearly 40 artists. Several are internationally acclaimed. Others are bright new talents. All of them have made new work simply by taking a journey on foot.

There are a number of activities accompanying the exhibition in addition to artist talks.
