LATEST NEWS: 'ART 50' & 'THE BRITISH' ON SCREEN
What is Art 50?
The outcome of the Brexit referendum stimulated a widespread debate about our national identity, with many people looking to express how they felt about our nation as we approach a future outside the EU. So Sky Arts commissioned 50 organisations and artists to do exactly that.
Projects and artists across the length and breadth of the UK included national treasures such asJohn Godber, Simon Armitage, AL Kennedy, Nitin Sawhney, Hanbury & Groves, Dancexchange, Boy Blue and Lemn Sissay alongside up and coming artists and many of these projects were showcased in February 2019 at Art 50 festivals in February at the Sage Gateshead, BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art and the Barbican in London.
An estimated 9000 people came to the Barbican Openfest:Art 50!
