Form, colour, form

14 May - 10 September 2017 

Kunsthaus Kannen, Münster, Germany

Five artists of the Kunsthaus Kannen show the ways and means of handling the parameters of form and colour. Alfred Olschewski studies the combination of colours in a row, Hans-Werner Padberg builds abstract, colourful objects, Matthias Klepgen creates with multicoloured bits and pieces miniature worlds; Bernhard Pfitzner changes used pieces of paper with coloured tapes into a new mental disposition; in his paintings, Josef Schwaf catches the colourful lights of a stage dipped into strong brightness.

Radical Craft: Alternative Ways of Making

12 March – 12 June 2016

Pallant House Gallery, Chichester, UK

Featuring the work of 34 international and UK-based artists who express their creativity unbounded by taught conventions, Outside In’s fourth triennial open exhibition – in collaboration with Craftspace and co-curated by Laura Hamilton – will feature work by renowned historical and contemporary artists associated with the field of outsider art alongside work from Outside In artists selected from submissions to an open call out. ‘Radical Craft: Alternative Ways of Making’ will showcase the creativity of artists who face barriers to the art world for reasons including health, disability, social circumstance or isolation. Although their practices may have been nurtured and encouraged in specialist centres or studios, most have never received any formal art training.

Themes in the exhibition include radical missions in which artists have a passion for a particular subject or technique; intuitive responses to textiles employed as non-verbal means of engaging with the outside world; autobiographical responses to the natural or urban environment; and folkloric or surreal perceptions of the world. The work in the exhibition has been developed with independence, perceptual senses and an obvious lack of inhibition which is rarely aimed at a particular audience or marketplace.

The show encompasses work by artists from Europe, America and Asia, including Judith Scott (USA), Nek Chand (India), and Willem van Genk (Netherlands), alongside UK pieces such as Michael Smith’s altered donated jeans, bound and wrapped with masking tape; Nnena Kalu’s large evolving cocoon-like forms of paper, fabric and foam bound and wrapped with tape, yarn and cling-film; and Beth Hopkins’ re-employed found objects.

‘Radical Craft: Alternative Ways of Making’ will launch at Pallant House Gallery from 12 March – 12 June 2016 before touring nationally. It will be accompanied by a series of related events.

ATIPYK

New exhibition : Artists against prejudices

September 13, 2014 - January 4, 2015

Since 2008, the year of ATIPYK foundation, we have conceived many exhibitions in France, supporting all authors who, mentally distressed, of French or of other nationalities, talk to us through their works.
Through those exhibitions, we have wanted to put an end to the confusion between therapeutic work and work of art. The author, thus designated by his or her work, is an actor in the project by proposing the creations he or she wants to show. We realize the exhibition scenery with no instrumentalization or stigmatization. Our actions take place in a legal and ethic field, in collaboration with the authors, the partner workshops and the sponsors of our projects.
 
 
Artist against prejudice
On the fringe of a permanent event organized by the Cité des Sciences (City of Sciences) on the human brain and the cognitive neurosciences, ATIPYK associated with it, presents works of art by authors whose creativity questions us.
