From 2 April, visitors to The Box will be welcomed by a new series of 13 figures, titled 'Plaster People', made from various sized plasters in a range of skin colours. The life sized figures are positioned in dialogue with The Box's majestic Royal Naval ship's figureheads. Alongside 'Plaster People', 'Present Traces – Blonde', a seminal sculpture made of synthetic hair, will be suspended from the ceiling nearby.

In the Active Archives gallery, five elaborate and colourful maps of the world will interact with The Box's archival displays, reflecting on notions of migration, displacement and conflict. Meanwhile, 'A Little Black Dress', a wearable sculpture made for the iconic fashion editor Isabella Blow in 2000, will be presented in 'Dress Code - Fashion Stories from The Box', The Box's first exhibition dedicated to Plymouth's costume and textiles collection.

From 6 August to 11 September, ‘On The Move’ will culminate with a major presentation in The Levinsky Gallery at the University of Plymouth. Anzeri’s rich practice from the last decade will be presented alongside a new body of works commissioned by The Box.
