How can we encourage more to look at the world with fresh eyes, unencumbered by the norms and standards of society? Perhaps start at A Piece Of Home, a group exhibition featuring 26 young persons with disabilities (PwDs). Organised by ART:DIS and curated by award-winning exhibition-maker John Tung, the comprehensive showcase of over 60 artworks across paintings, prints & ceramics invites viewers to perceive the world differently.
Raising the Awareness of Artists with Disabilities
This exhibition is a highlight of ART:DIS’s 30th anniversary celebration and a cumulation of a year of artist-in-training programme in the Fine Arts and Ceramics faculty. Held at Objectifs, an arts space nestled amongst many art institutions, we hope to raise the visibility artists with disabilities, expose them to professional art spaces and invite others into their world where art is a sanctuary. Let their creations ignite your imagination and remind you of the power of finding solace in familiar spaces.
