Mar 25 - Apr 22, 2017
META-MATTER unites seven international artists who seek to mediate the material and transcendental forces that propel our visual and psychological landscape. Invoking the supernatural powers of colour, light, pattern, and form, they seek messages in the metaphysical properties of the world around us. Fusing art and science, physics and intuition, they step closer to capturing the sublime and untouchable forces which drive and shape our phenomenal universe.
Artists include Clare Strand (UK), United Visual Artists (UK), Sara VanDerBeek (USA), Sookoon Ang (Singapore), Anouk Kruithof (Mexico), Sergei Sviatchenko (Denmark), and Patternity (UK)
Meta-Matter is curated by Faye Dowling.

Jul 15 - Sep 2, 2017
Plymouth Contemporary is an open submission exhibition that provides a platform for new, up and coming creative talent alongside nationally and internationally significant artists. Following the hugely successful launch of the first Plymouth Contemporary in 2015, this bi-annual exhibition seeks to become recognised as a beacon for showcasing the latest talent and new perspectives within contemporary art.
The Plymouth Contemporary is a partnership between the three key cultural change-makers within Plymouth in the lead up to 2020; Plymouth University, the Plymouth History Centre – the City’s 34 million visitor attraction for art and heritage, due to open during the Mayflower 400 commemorations – and KARST, Plymouth’s largest independent, artist-led contemporary art venue.

Sep 22 - Nov 18, 2017
Private view Fri Sep 22 8pm - 10pm
As part of We The People Are The Work's multi-site exhibition coming to KARST is Claire Fontaine, a collective feminist artist, lifted from a popular brand of French stationary. Working in neon, video, sculpture and text, Fontaine’s work often interrogates through her art the impotence of people in the face of social and political issues.
Lifting quotes from Donald Trump and the Brexit debate, she creates a visual and conceptual polyphony where the viewer is invited to take a position.
