The Art Party!

Thursday 21st August 2014

Thursday 21 August, 3-7pm (drop in at any time), free. Film screened at 5.45pm (80 mins).

The Art Party! is the latest in a line of collaborations between director Tim Newton and artist Bob & Roberta Smith. Part documentary, part road movie and part political fantasy, The Art Party! feature film captures the spirit of the Scarborough conference held in November 2013; championing the importance of art and its place in education and modern politics. A kaleidoscopic mix of performance, artist interviews and imagined scenes, featuring work and comment by artists as diverse as Cornelia Parker, John Smith, Haroon Mirza, Jeremy Deller and Jessica Voorsanger.

The Art Party! is being screened at venues across the UK on the same day. At Plymouth Arts Centre we are throwing our own Art Party to accompany the film. The day will include the film screening, an opportunity to see the results of our Perfect World project, creative activities for all including badge making, Michael Gove portrait painting, slogan printing, and a Plymouth Arts Centre barbecue and music.

We will also be holding The PAC Home After Art Party! Join local artists for a drink and respond to The Art Party! on our soapbox. Optimists, pessimists and realists welcome. No need to book.
