Project Art Works Launches EXPLORERS 2019
11th Dec 2018
EXPLORERS 2019 goes on tour to leading art galleries in the UK and Australia with a programme of film, exhibition and workshops that challenge and enhance representation in curatorial programming.
The 2019 EXPLORERS programme launches with Illuminating the Wilderness a new film and installation by Kate Adams and Timothy Corrigan, opening at MK Gallery in The Lie Of The Land, the inaugural exhibition of their new building and gallery in March 2019. This work made in collaboration with artists Ben Rivers, Margaret Salmon and Project Art Works’ artists and makers, reveals time spent together investigating a remote Scottish glen in collaboration with a group of people who are highly sensitive to the sensory stimuli of the world around them.
Kate Adams MBE, Artist Director and CEO, Project Art Works said:
Through EXPLORERS we have worked to increase the visibility and representation of people with disability in culture. Why is this important? Because art is enriched by diverse voices and artists, organisations and institutions have a critical role to play in social cohesion. The people and organisations involved in the work have been extraordinary and have fully embraced the relationships that have emerged through collaborative working. Relationships that will endure long after the EXPLORERS programme – nurturing and promoting art that truly reflects different ways of living in and experiencing the world.
