Shape Open Exhibition: Exploring Ideas of Disability

Exhibition runs until the 6th May 2012

Tuesday - Sunday 12-6pm

Prize giving event 3 May, 6:30pm
Free Entry.

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!!!
