New exhibition to feature on TV
Published: 14 November 2019
A new art exhibition at Exeter's Royal Albert Memorial Museum (RAMM) features on regional television tonight.
Sea Garden will be featured on BBC TV Spotlight at 6.30pm on Thursday 14 November. The exhibition begins at RAMM on Saturday 16 November and runs until 26 January
This vibrant and intriguing contemporary art exhibition explores the female-gendered relationship with the sea and seaweed. 'Sea Garden' brings together RAMM's first South West Commission, a moving-image work by Bryony Gillard, alongside works by internationally-renowned contemporary artists.
Works include Dartmoor-based photographer Susan Derges's recent rock pool series; film and photography by Dorothy Cross; Mikhail Karikis's video installation 'Sea Women'; and Turner Prize-nominee Lucy Skaer's reworked nineteenth-century seaweed prints. You will be surprised and challenged by thoughtful and cutting-edge artwork, displayed alongside beautiful examples of pressed seaweeds from RAMM's own collections.
There is an associated event, Fertile Thinking. Click on the RAMM website for more information and tickets.
