We The People Are The Work Publication
We The People Are The Work was a major visual arts project in Plymouth curated by Foreground Director Simon Morrissey that explored ideas of power, protest and the public.
The project built connections between the people of Plymouth and internationally renowned artists Claire Fontaine, Peter Liversidge, Antonio Vega Macotela and Eduardo Thomas, Ciara Phillips and Matt Stokes, through structures that involved people living in Plymouth in generating the ideas artworks in the exhibition alongside the artists.
Containing specially commissioned texts by writer Lizzie Lloyd that provide extensive insight into each individual artist’s commission and an introductory text written by Simon Morrissey discussing the core ideas that underpinned the project, the 46 page We The People Are The Work publication is an excellent entry point into exploring the exhibition’s distinctive processes and why its themes are of particular importance in today’s politically tumultuous times.
