Ciara Phillips uses the discipline of printmaking to explore social concerns and develop collaborative practices. Regularly opening up her exhibitions as working print studios, she uses them as places for investigation, social action, discussion and debate.

In Plymouth Phillips has made a major new installation that takes over the multiple galleries and social spaces of Plymouth Arts Centre to turn them into a production space exploring the intersection of the personal and the political where she will work live in the exhibition with groups of women from the city to produce prints and textiles to represent their specific voices and shared concerns.

Plymouth Arts Centre

Plymouth Arts Centre is a nationally acclaimed centre for contemporary art, independent cinema and creative learning.

We commission work by national and international artists, working with them to develop a unique, challenging and varied programme of exhibitions. 

Our cinema is independent, so we hand-pick all of our films, from the best of arthouse cinema from around the world to those blockbusters that you wouldn’t want to watch anywhere else.

Learning is at the heart of all of our activities. Plymouth Arts Centre is a creative place to socialise, and we want to enable as many people as possible to experience art, and feel inspired, confident and thrilled by what they encounter.

We believe that culture changes the world for the better.
