Presented by Salamanca Arts Centre
and part of the Ten Days on the Island Festival 2011
Curated by Colin Langridge
Salamanca Arts Centre’s
Major Curated Exhibition for 2011
dis-covery is an exhibition that broaches three ideas: island life, artistic romanticism and romantic ideas of islands and island culture. Curator Colin Langridge has selected artists whose works reveal aspects of islands and island culture and that provide a critique of romantic notions of the island.
The artists all have lived on islands and have made artworks that reveal how they have experienced something beyond the brief island experience of the tourist or visitor. The exhibition will present both new and existing artworks.
