ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
Artists from Creativity Explored in San Francisco; HAI of New York; Kunstwerkplaats from Amsterdam; Rocket Artists, Brighton; as well as Kcat, Kilkenny; St Raphaels, Youghal; Glasheen Artists Studio Group, Cork; and Cùig, Mayfield, Cork, will present an extensive international collection of truly invigorating work that highlights the talent of these artists.
The exhibition will be accompanied by a publication, discussions and workshops with participating artists, aiming to connect with a diverse audience through the Crawford Gallery’s access and outreach programme and CIT Crawford College of Art & Design’s academic programme.
It is an ambitious undertaking, both in scale and intent, aiming to bring to public awareness the richness and variety of artistic practice created by artists with intellectual disabilities: a community often placed at the margins of society, but who none the less are making an increasingly important contribution to the contemporary art world.
