Art serves many purposes, one of which is to escape reality. Fifty of Melbourne's most imaginative artists with disability are joining forces in an exhibition that celebrates the upcoming International Day of People with Disability (on Tuesday, December 3). Each artist's goal is to create work that re-conceives reality — to envision a world that's fairer, kinder and, most importantly, within everyone's reach.
Axiom: A Reimagined Reality will take over the [email protected] for four days, from Tuesday, December 3 to Friday, December 6. Drop in anytime during the week to see drawings, paintings, photography and sculpture that will challenge you to see everyday life from a whole new perspective.
The exhibition is a collaboration between the Brotherhood of St Laurence, Arts Access Victoria and Footscray Community Arts Centre. The venue and event space is accessible by wheelchair, and there's a sensory space available, as well as free Auslan tours, which you can register for here, and an audio described tour, which you can sign up for here.
The Axiom: A Reimagined Reality exhibition will be open from 10am–4pm on Tuesday, December 3 to Thursday, December 5 and from 9am–12pm on Friday, December 6.
