Unfortunately, due to an unforeseen building issue that affects access to the exhibition, we have had to postpone Abundance at V.O Curations. We apologise for any inconvenience caused and will release more information about the show soon.
Abundance is an unmissable group exhibition of artworks by the artists Chandrakant Patel (ActionSpace, London), Erin Keogh (Project Ability, Glasgow) and Kathy Wilmott (Venture Arts, Manchester). The touring exhibition is the culmination of a three year collaborative project between ActionSpace, Project Ability and Venture Arts celebrating the work of learning disabled artists.
This final showcase in London is produced by ActionSpace in collaboration with V.O Curations and is curated by artist Louis Caseley.
All three artists in Abundance have significant bodies of work and are being shown on a larger scale. The exhibition will explore the relationship between the prolific making of the artists and their distinct abstract practices through an immersive experience. A programme of live, inclusive events will accompany the exhibition and a relaxed space will be integrated into the exhibition for all audiences.
The exhibiting artists were selected by artist Sonia Boué, who comments that audiences will be drawn to and ‘connect with the immediacy, energy and abundance of life within the three selected practices.’
Abundance is part of the Explorers Project, a creative programme and framework for increasing the visibility and representation of neurodivergent artists in contemporary visual art.
Explorers is a dynamic collaborative programme of art and action that opens up routes into artistic practice for neurominorities, dismantling attitudinal and systemic barriers to representation and rights in art and society. Explorers is led by Project Art Works, in conjunction with eight key partners: ActionSpace, Autograph, BALTIC, IntoArt, MK Gallery, Outside In, Photoworks and Venture Arts. Explorers is a creative programme and framework for increasing the visibility and representation of neurodivergent artists in contemporary visual art.
