This exhibition is a powerful and playful exploration of what life might have been like for disabled women had external limitations not been in place.
But it’s not a sad story, instead it’s a unique opportunity to see especially created new works of art by some of the Disability Arts Movements leading disabled women artists and thinkers, all of whom are aged over 50, play with representation and expectation in works which are witty, poetic and provocative in this call-to-arms celebration. Each work presented is individual and unique with artists working across a wide range of mediums including photography, painting, wall sculpture, collage, textiles and embroidery. We’ve seen the work and we cannot wait to bring it all together in one place and share it with you.
The artists in the collective are Michelle Baharier, Samantha Blackburn, Caroline Cardus, Honor Flaherty, Pauline Heath, Cheryl Martin, JulieMc McNamara, Lynne McFarlane, Dolly Sen, and Vici Wreford-Sinnott.
