KONSORTIUM: spaceinvader, at KARST, 2012

“KARST was founded in 2012 by artists inspired by the British Art Show 7, who wanted to develop an artist-led space in Plymouth to produce and show the best international contemporary art. In less than a decade, we’ve grown to become the most ambitious gallery in the South West with a reputation for being edgy, dynamic and challenging.” (from the KARST website)

Inaugural exhibition: KONSORTIUM: Lars Breuer / Sebastian Freytag / Guido Münch, 22 June-15 July


“Turner, Monet, Twombly” at Tate Liverpool, 22 June-28 October

“Turner Monet Twombly: Later Paintings was visited by over 80,000 people. The exhibition explored these three great artists’ shared fascination with light and landscape. It also inspired an ambitious community programme, Our Liverpool Landscape, connecting over 10,000 local residents with the parks and green spaces of Liverpool. Residents mapped nature in brownfield sites, sought out vantage points for viewing sunsets and sowed wild flowers and grasses, among other things. Environment artist Kerry Morrison led the activity, which involved partners across the city, including Liverpool City Council Parks and Gardens Department.” (from the Tate Annual Report 2012/13)
