The Wanderers was a programme of one-off events, installations, performances and talks around Falmouth and the surrounding waterways of the Carrick Roads in summer 2015. It ran in parallel to Newlyn Art Gallery’s international exhibition In Search of The Miraculous, bringing together a group of developing artists who created site-specific works that go beyond the horizon in pursuit of new experiences and precarious journeys.
Medium Rare produced a hard bound publication, realised in collaboration with the other artists commissioned for The Wanderers which documents, compliments and extends the programme.
