Shape Open 2012

Kate Murdoch has been accepted to Shape Open 2012, a visual arts competition that asks disabled and non-disabled artists to respond to ‘disability’.

“I think the reason this exhibition might raise a few eyebrows is an element of confusion over the meaning of Disability Arts. To make Disability Arts within the Disability Arts Movement framework, you had to be making work about disability and the artist had to be a disabled person.

But disability arts outside the movement is a conceptual term and refers to the work having some sort of conceptual relation to the meaning of disability and this doesn’t mean you have to have a disability to be able to respond with validity to the subject. This is part of the reason why we opened the exhibition up to disabled and non-disabled people because this is a survey of contemporary disability arts and not a survey of the types of artists who made it.”

Ben Fredericks, Shape programme officer and co-curator for Shape Open interviewed by Trish Wheately.

The exhibition runs through May 6th at Portobello Gallery, Notting Hill W10 5XL.  Awards presented May 3rd at 6:30pm.
