Shape Open Exhibition: Exploring Ideas of Disability
Portobello Gallery-Notting Hill
Tuesday - Sunday 12-6pm
Prize giving event 3 May, 6:30pm
A few months ago we featured Shape Arts Open Exhibition. As you may recall Shape required creative's to respond to the definition of disability (from the Oxford English Dictionary 1. A physical or mental condition that limits a person’s movements, senses or activities 2. A disadvantage or handicap, especially one imposed or recognised by the law).
Interpretations of the disability definition were widely welcomed, from abstract to figurative, from the personal to the political and from the poetic to the in-your-face. Now the time has swiftly arrived to view Shape sought submissions from disabled and non disabled artists at Portobello Gallery situated in West London. The resulting exhibition will highlight mixed ideas on how we view disability within our society. An exhibition worth visiting!!!
The Shape Open Prize of £500 will be awarded to an artist selected by a panel. The People’s Choice Award of £250 will be voted for by visitors on the 3rd May at 6.30pm.
