Join us for the opening of Mariner: A painted ship upon a painted ocean, an exhibition of new commissions and artworks that consider the contemporary resonance of The Rime of The Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge (1772-1834).
This show looks at what connects us across history and the present, from the desire to travel – to journey out and back again – to the role of intuition and imagination, the making of mistakes and the process of recovery and redemption through knowledge and understanding.
Philip Hoare, writer, film-maker and exhibition co-curator and Angela Cockayne, artist and exhibition co-curator will be giving an introductory speech at 6pm.
Mariner is curated by Sarah Chapman, Angela Cockayne and Philip Hoare and is delivered by The Arts Institute and The Box, Plymouth partnership.
