Disrupted is a group exhibition that has been conceived for mac birmingham to directly respond to, and interact with, the arts centre venue, the building and its audiences.
The artworks and installations exhibited here invite visitors to encounter the 'Other' - that which is different and unfamiliar, often remaining unseen in our day to day lives - and to engage with it in a familiar space.
Curated by Noemi Lakmaier during her year-long residency at mac, the exhibition explores the sense of awkwardness such encounters can bring, and the unique experiences and unexpected insights that can emerge from them.
Disrupted brings together both established and emerging artists working in the realm of Disability Arts, including the Swedish performance artist Anna Berntdson, London-based artist and activist The Vacuum Cleaner, Martin O'Brien and up and coming sculptor Anna Smith from Wolverhampton.
Disrupted is a mac birmingham commission in partnership with DASH as part of 'IN', a DASH initiative concerned with sustaining Disability Arts in the mainstream.
The exhibition is on display until Sunday 3rd May 2015!
