The Otherness. A collaborative exhibition of edging, painting and mixed media


This is an exhibition that seeks to preserve and express the voices of society’s outsiders. The artists in this exhibition come from different social and ethnic backgrounds. Although physically they live within society’s walls, they stand apart. They are or have chosen to be themselves outsiders; and they perceive and face society through the outsider’s eyes. It is from this conflict that the seeds of this exhibition derive.

Based on their experiences, the artists have put together this exhibition, seeking to question and challenge society’s presumptions of outsiders and hoping that the collection will enhance our understanding and inquiry of society’s ‘others’.
