Join us to launch our upcoming exhibition Traces, which explores disabled joy through creative mark-making to transform preconceptions with contemporary artists alongside giant wheelchair prints made by local children.
In 2023 creative producers Pasha Kincaid and Morgan Stockton with a number of art activists worked with Ash Field Academy, a school for children with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) in Leicester, to facilitate intensive sessions of wheelchair printing and giant mark-making with wheelchair users from ages 4-19. A selection of the dynamic wheelchair prints created by the children and young people are to be shown alongside the works of contemporary artists Sue Austin, Daryl Beeton, Laura Dajao, Aminder Virdee and Joseph Wilk.
The artists were selected to inspire young people to go beyond the perceived limitations of disability and were asked to offer work in response to the children’s creative processes to explore the concept of traces. The exhibition will include new commissions, co-produced projects and several significant loans such as the film and stills from Sue Austin’s ‘Creating the Spectacle’, an immersive dance performance and underwater exploration the artist undertook using her uniquely modified wheelchair.
Traces will open to the public from 23 February – 19 May 2024 in Gallery 1. All our galleries are free entry and open 7 days a week, weekdays 12pm – 5pm and weekend 12pm – 4pm.
Drinks will be available throughout the night. Free for all with booking required.
