Jerwood Open Forest has awarded its 2016 commission to artist Keith Harrison whose new work 'Joyride' will explore the links between community, industry, car manufacture and access to nature, in a new installation and performance event for autumn 2017.

Keith Harrison was the New Expressions 3 artist at Plymouth City Museum and Art Gallery in 2015. His New Expressions commission, Heavy Rock, responded to the processes involved in protecting Plymouth from the sea via the city’s historic breakwater.

Jerwood Open Forest responds to the need to support artists to work in forest contexts. It is a collaboration between Jerwood Charitable Foundation and Forestry Commission England, with the support of Arts Council England.
