RELAY is a programme of free contemporary arts events, exhibitions and performances taking place around the south east of England from April onwards.
RELAY celebrates the London 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games by taking sport, art and location as starting points for a series of new artist commissions.
The RELAY baton will be passed from major contemporary arts organisations across the South East from Fabrica, Brighton; to Aspex Gallery, Portsmouth; on to MK Gallery, Milton Keynes; handing over to Modern Art Oxford and finally to Turner Contemporary, Margate and Stour Valley Arts, King's Wood Ashford.
In addition to the new RELAY artist commissions, there will be other RELAY events organised by the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill on Sea; John Hansard Gallery, Southampton and Pallant House Gallery, Chichester.
RELAY is presented by Turning Point South East, the regional network for the visual arts. The programme is a unique collaboration between the south east contemporary arts organisations, universities, often working closely with the Creative Campus Initiative, and with local sporting groups.
