What makes ‘a good neighbour’ in Plymouth?

22 September – 12 November 2017, Civic Centre hoardings, Plymouth

In partnership with the 15th Istanbul Biennial and Urban Splash, the Atlantic Project presents Elmgreen & Dragset’s international billboard project on the theme of a good neighbour in sites across Plymouth. The posters incorporate photographs by Lukas Wassmann and design by Rupert Smyth, picturing unexpected encounters, along with questions about the concept of 'a good neighbour'. Realised in collaboration with institutions around the world, from Havana to Delhi, and Sydney to Limerick, the project takes its theme from the title of the 15th Istanbul Biennial, curated by artist duo, Elmgreen & Dragset. In Plymouth, a series of related performances and events include projects by Beyond Face and Fotonow, with Devon & Cornwall Refugee Support, exploring questions of co-existence and neighbourliness in the context of Plymouth specifically.
