LEVEL Open Call – Exhibition

Online Public Art Exhibition

Contemporary Visual Art

“LEVEL Centre’s inaugural Open Exhibition marks a new stage in the organisation’s existence; one that seeks to reach new artists and audiences in a continuation of its aspirations to celebrate and support all kinds of creative experiences with, by and for disabled artists. This Open exhibition includes a brilliant selection of artists both disabled and non disabled, all of whom showcase a wide range of styles of working; from the quiet introspective of domestic space, to vivid, expressive portraiture which offers a new perspective on iconic pop-imagery.

There’s something really lovely about being able to take these moments of creativity that so often are held exclusively in private spaces, and pose them publicly. It’s one of my favorite aspects of working creatively, to take a thing – image, object, performance – and hold it in a space where it can be gazed upon, felt and heard; where it can be chatted about, discussed and critiqued; where it can be shared in a world beyond your own. Open Exhibitions have a wonderful way of doing this, especially when there are so many barriers in accessing shared, critically creative spaces for many artists. This is particularly the case for many disabled artists, which is why we were so delighted to have so many artworks by disabled artists featured in the show.

We are so excited to be able to exhibit these works and take advantage of the wonderful gallery space at LEVEL Centre, utilising our unique venue in the heart of the Peak District to facilitate many kinds of creative experiences. We are thrilled to be platforming these artists, and look forward to sparking more connections between our artists and our audiences in this new programme going forward.”
