Cultural and community leaders have joined new and established artists for the launch of the first Plymouth Contemporary Open.
Hosted by the Peninsula Arts Gallery at Plymouth University, the exhibition features 24 striking works by artists and collaborations from across the UK and Europe.
Open from now until the end of August, the works explore the relationship between history and the very latest innovations and understanding within contemporary art practice.
The Open, sponsored by Santander Universities, is the first initiative from the Plymouth Contemporary Partnership, a new collaboration between Peninsula Arts, Plymouth University and the Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery.
The Plymouth Contemporary Open will be on display until Saturday 29 August 2015. For more information, visit www.peninsula-arts.co.uk.
