#JHGFootprints is an online exhibition using John Hansard Gallery’s archive. Four themes will be selected, sharing material associated with the chosen concept. . Theme 3: Artist and the Body/Performance . “Throughout the 20th Century, one of the major developments in art has been the evolving role and use of an artist’s own body as a source of ideas, expression and experimentation. Manifesting itself in a range of ways over the decades, the shifting focus and pushing of boundaries has been a hugely significant driver in how art has evolved, and continues to evolve to this day.” .

As part of a broader sector support programme, @visualartssw’s Together We Will invites visual arts communities living and working within the South West to attend a meeting dedicated to their local context. . Our region is vast and diverse, and the infrastructure and resources for maintaining visual arts practices, public programming activities and professional networks varies between counties and local areas. These meetings are intended as forums for open discussion, with the key objective to map out our colleagues and peers’ priorities for urban and rural localities in the South West. . The forums will consider the long-term impact of both COVID-19 and Brexit on the visual arts sector, while informing Visual Arts South West’s future sector support work. .
