You are warmly invited to C~C, 24 April at Tate St Ives, Cornwall.

As part of Tate St Ives Artists Programme, this special Late at Tate welcomes artists Bryony Gillard and Oliver Sutherland and a new research project entitled C~C

C~C explores the coincidental, tangential, formal and informal similarities and links between the Cornish Coast and Pacific Coast (California) as sites for the production of art. The project draws connections and comparisons between art practices and movements, landscapes, geologies and socio-political concerns; spanning time zones and histories.
 
A series of artworks and performances will be presented throughout the gallery, overlaying and intervening with The Modern Lens exhibition and the fabric of Tate St Ives. The artworks gathered and made in response to C~C explore complicated relationships between peripheral coastal sites and art making; drawing on both the mythic and lived realities of these landscapes.
 
The project presents new commissions from Chris Dyson (UK/USA), Bryony Gillard (UK), Andrew Munks (UK), Rachelle Sawatsky (CA), Oliver Sutherland (UK), Savannah Theis (DE). Alongside existing works by Walter de Maria (USA), Elias Romero (USA), Sarah Rara (USA), Gino Saccone (JE).
