Currently in its sixth year, the Open is Shape’s annual exhibition of artwork by disabled and non-disabled artists created in response to a disability-centred theme.
This year’s theme is “Collective Influence”: what influences you? How does influence go further than inspiration? Influence has the power to provoke change, it has the capacity to affect society. “Collective Influence” is an exhibition which will examine the interwoven influences of art, disability and the power of a collective voice. Questioning how the “collective” has the power to evoke change in contrast to individual influence, viral influence, or positive and negative influences, this exhibition is an examination of the role art plays in influencing social change.
