The Sea is the Limit

4 May – 2 September 2018

The sea is the limit is a stunning and thought provoking exhibition of international artists’ works addressing the current and ongoing issues of immigration, migration, refugees, integration and borders, both of a cultural and geo-political nature.

The project, organised by York Art Gallery and curated by a contemporary UK-based artist Varvara Shavrova, will feature audio visual objects, interactive installations, live public art works and other pieces.

The exhibition will be accompanied by a dynamic public programme, which will include a series of public art talks, artists’ talks and tours of exhibition, and a round table discussion focusing on various aspects and problems of migration, refugees, borders, and the role of contemporary art within these themes.

The participating artists are: Susan Stockwell, Halil Altindere, Nidal Chamekh, Nick Ellwood, Shahram Entekhabi, Taus Makhacheva, Mohammad Sami, Varvara Shavrova, and Vanessa Vozzo.

The sea is the limit is curated by Varvara Shavrova, and is produced in consultation with Patrick Heide Contemporary Art Gallery, London, with special thanks to Kerlin Gallery, Dublin, and Eugster II Belgrade Gallery.
