Description

Making Lines 2018
In this 3 day inclusive arts workshop, 25 participants - arts professionals and artists with learning disabilities - used coloured BAM tape to track their movements across the gallery to make a large scale collaborative installation as part of the Unlimited Airport Exhibition at New Taipei City Art Gallery.
Participants explored lines as paths of movement (1) that both connected (the participants) and Rocket Artists (distant in the UK), whilst charting impromptu meeting points along the way. Using performative approaches to drawing, participants were invited to meet, and work together to navigate and make visible their journeys across the gallery space, in the receiving and exchange of messages.
Together we asked ‘How can lines and traces capture and make visible our encounters in the development of inclusive arts exchanges?’
