The Open X CRP Poster Exhibition
Running concurrently to 'The Open' exhibition at Turner Contemporary is a collaboration with the Creative Isle Community Rail Partnership. Artworks which aren’t exhibited in the Turner Contemporary gallery spaces have been distributed on posters across the rail network at posters sites in stations across Thanet.
The Turner Contemporary Open is an open submission exhibition that marks our 10th anniversary. This ambitious exhibition celebrates and showcases the wealth of artistic talent in Kent and Medway.
The Creative Isle Community Rail Partnership is a collaboration between Turner Contemporary and Thanet District Council with support from Southeastern. The CICRP covers the line and all seven stations on the route in Thanet. The new Partnership will offer a voice for the community through art and creative interventions, animating railway stations and trains in innovative ways.
Running concurrently to The Open exhibition at Turner Contemporary is a collaboration with the Creative Isle Community Rail Partnership. Artworks which aren’t exhibited in the Turner Contemporary gallery spaces have been distributed on posters across the rail network at posters sites in stations across Thanet.
