Control Point: A Temporary Facility
Plymouth Arts Centre has invited artists Sovay Berriman and Steven Paige to curate an exhibition concerning artist-led practice.
The galleries became a hub, mapping artists operating and active in the city of Plymouth and the UK and presenting the hidden processes of the artist’s studio. Control Point offered artists and audiences an opportunity to consider and examine how artists can accomplish significance and arm themselves with skills for survival in the current climate, in the studio and through workshops, talks, presentations and residencies.
