Next Summer Art Saves Lives will be taking round a touring exhibition of amazing works of art by artists.
NOT- Art by Offenders!
NOT- Art by Homeless people!
NOT- Art by Mental health patients!
The list goes on doesn’t it? When are curators going to stop marginalizing- labelling and pigeon holing? When are viewers and art lovers going to be able to view art without preconceptions about pasts- histories and present day problems shoved down their throats? The art needs to be viewed and judged fairly- for exactly what it is- ART.
Artists who are- for whatever reason marginalised work just as hard if not harder than other artists- they need to be treated the same if they are to stand any chance in the art world-
A world that is in two circles- an inner and an outer- there are more people looking in than looking out- the barriers need to come down- we now need to start sharing.
