12th November- 12th December
Art Apart is a travelling exhibition by the charity Indian Futures. It consists of work by local artists that were created during Covid19 lockdowns. The main aim of Art Apart is to shine a light and celebrate the often undervalued -and definitely underpaid- amazing work of artists during the pandemic. The exhibition will feature a large illustrations series "Lost in Books" by Marta Jim. Other works by Firm Gently, Remi Weremczuk, Michelle Fine, Monir Amiri, Mark Mayes, Sharon Earth-Girl and Stee Louw, will be shown digitally.
Indian Futures is a registered charity that aims to improve the standards of living in rural areas of South India. They support community development projects, with a particular focus on quality education and women’s empowerment. In the UK and Spain, they organise fundraising events that promote education and the arts.
