Honeycomb, light-drawings and an exploration of one artist’s own death are just some of the inspiring features of Hard Wired, a new touring exhibition which opens on 8 June.
The result of a collaboration between award-winning arts charity Outside In and the pioneering Art Unpacked project run by Chrysalis Arts Development, Hard Wired features collections of work by ten of the charity’s artists who face barriers to the art world due to disability, health, social circumstance or isolation.
Art Unpacked project manager Sara Trentham-Black said: “We think that audiences in Bridlington, Catterick, Whitby and Chorley libraries will be intrigued by the thought provoking responses to the theme of technology and how it impacts on all our lives.”
The work has been selected by a panel of judges following a national call out to Outside In artists and will be on show at four libraries in North Yorkshire, East Riding of Yorkshire and Lancashire, starting with North Bridlington from 8 June to 13 July.
Outside In founder Marc Steene said: ““Hard Wired showcases the diverse and extraordinary work created by Outside In artists. The result is a thought-provoking exhibition which offers poignant and powerful perspectives on the theme of technology – something that impacts everyone’s lives in different ways.”
