Radical Craft: Alternative Ways of Making

Outside In National 2016 in collaboration with Craftspace

34 international and UK artists who express their creativity unbounded by taught conventions are showing work in Radical Craft: Alternative Ways of Making, a Craftspace and Outside In touring exhibition launching at Pallant House Gallery on 12th March 2016. The exhibition, which is co-curated by Laura Hamilton, will showcase artworks by historically renowned artists associated with Outsider Art and contemporary self-taught artists who see themselves as facing barriers to the art world for reasons including health, disability, social circumstance or isolation; 20 of whom have been selected from open submissions.

Eminent artist Alice Kettle, one of the selectors for the open UK call for artists says the exhibition “communicates the dynamic of living and making, of using transformative potential of craft to enter other visionary worlds…craft becomes a process of resistance and method of adaptation”

Congratulations to Sue B, Terence Wilde, Beth Hopkins, Mr X and Xavier White and all the other artists from across the country who have been represented in this impressive exhibition. The work will be on show at Pallant House Gallery until June 12 after which it will tour nationally.
