Film Oxford presents new work by the Shadowlight Artists, an independent group of artists with learning disabilities based in Oxfordshire. Including installation, painting and digital media, the project forms part of Film Oxford’s 30th anniversary celebrations.
A private view to launch the week-long exhibition will be held on Tuesday 11 October between 6 and 8pm. All are welcome to join.
The Shadowlight Artists are a group of five artists with learning disabilities based in Oxfordshire, working in a variety of media but with a shared interest in digital forms. Their work is personal, moving, and at times challenging. The group formed in 2009 as a result of Film Oxford’s Flash Frame project. The aim of that project had been to identify individuals with leaning disabilities who showed artistic potential and ambition to take their work to a broader audience. Since then, the group have gone on to produce work that has reached audiences within the UK and beyond, spanning media from painting and sculptural installation to film and theatrical production.
This exhibition showcases the work produced by the group during the Creative Bridges project, which has allowed each member of the group to produce a new work in collaboration with an established professional artist.
