Online exhibition of works on the theme of disability Shape Arts, a British arts organization working to improve access to the culture of people with disabilities, is an annual exhibition of works by disabled and non-disabled artists on the theme of disability. "Shape Open" is being held.
Introducing paintings, 3D and video works by a wide range of artists, from up-and-coming artists to career artists, selected by people in the art sector, including Inca Shonivale CBE, the sponsor of the Shape Open. "The Shape Open is a great platform for artists with disabilities to showcase their work. These exhibitions provide a great opportunity for more audiences and institutions to learn about artists and their work."
Until now, the exhibition has been held in high-profile art spaces such as the Nunnery Gallery and Portobello Gallery in London Bow Arts, but in 2020, it will be a digital exhibition due to the spread of the new coronavirus infection.
The works of 25 artists are published online. This exhibition takes accessibility into consideration as much as possible, such as an audio description (English) that explains the work by voice for all works.
Video works with audio closed captions, and if a sign language interpreter screen can be embedded, a British Sign Language (BSL) support version is also available so that everyone can enjoy the work.
Please see the works on the official website of the exhibition.
