Unlimited Exhibition

By | Published on Monday 31 August 2015


‘Unlimited’ is a support programme for disabled artists, aiming to help disabled artists overcome adversity and get their work out there. The Unlimited Exhibition at Summerhall features multi-media work by Katherine Araniello, Richard Butchins, Nicola Canavan, Jez Colborne, Lea Cummings, Claire Cunningham, Tony Heaton, Sheila Hill, Simon Mckeown, Aidan Moesby and Pum Dunbar, Bekki Perriman and Craig Simpson and covers hard-hitting themes such as ageing and the long term impact of war. While the presence of women within the art community has received a lot of media attention, in part due to the efforts of the Guerilla Girls, the problems faced by disabled artists have been largely overlooked; hence why this exhibition is so important.

Summerhall, until 5 Oct.
