The Atlantic Project: After the Future, is a pilot for a new biennial festival of contemporary art in Plymouth.

About

The Atlantic Project is a new biennial festival of contemporary art in Plymouth (UK) from 28 September - 21 October 2018. Across the city international artists, including Hito Steyerl, Ryoji Ikeda and SUPERFLEX, will present new site-specific commissions in unconventional contexts and outdoor locations, whilst an open platform for artist-led activities will offer opportunities for emerging artists

.
Hosted by The Arts Institute at University of Plymouth, The Atlantic Project is part of Horizon, a two-year visual arts development programme (2016-18) led by Plymouth Culture with the financial support of Arts Council England’s Ambition for Excellence fund and Plymouth City Council. Curated by Tom Trevor, the project has been developed as a core partnership between The Box (the multi-million pound redevelopment of Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery) and the University of Plymouth, with the ambition to become a regular biennial festival in the South West of England, to be launched as part of the Mayflower 400 programme in 2020.


2018 artists include: Nilbar Güreş (Turkey), Tommy Støckel (Denmark), Liu Chuang (China), Yan Wang Preston (UK), Hito Steyerl (Germany), Vermeir & Heiremans (Belguim), Kiluanji Kia Henda (Angola), Donald Rodney (UK), Postcommodity (USA), Ryoji Ikeda (Japan), Carl Slater (UK), SUPERFLEX (Denmark), Uriel Orlow (Switzerland), Khadija von Zinnenburg Carroll (Australia), Chang Jia (South Korea), Jane Grant and John Matthias (UK), Ursula Biemann (Switzerland) and Bryony Gillard (UK).

Drawing inspiration from Plymouth’s past and present, artworks will be located across the city, encouraging exploration of the historic coastal city, and the discovery of contemporary art in unexpected locations.
