22-28 October 2011
Guildhall Shopping Centre, Exeter

Created as a response to the visit of the British Art Show 7 to Plymouth in Autumn 2011, HEIST used theft as a metaphor and mechanism for dealing with the large and disparate body of work that made up the British Art Show and the associated Plymouth Fringe.

HEIST explored the mechanics of the contemporary art market, including the value assigned to different types of art or artefacts. It reflected on the legal as well as illegal transactions that utilise art as a commodity or currency.

HEIST was part of Plymouth Fringe.
