2x2 International Outsider Art Fair

From the 3rd to the 6th October Project Ability joined twenty European studios, galleries and museums for the third 2x2 International Outsider Art Fair at Kunsthaus Kannen, Munster, Germany. 

We showed drawings by Simon McAuley, Luigi Bertonesi and Marie Christie and ceramic sculptures by George Stevenson.

The 3rd annual 2x2 Art Fair was a forum for discussion and exchange, it provided the opportunity for sharing experience and giving insights into one another’s practice. There were studios and galleries from France, Germany, The Netherlands, Poland and Hungary with Project Ability representing the UK.

On the 4th, a series of papers covered a range of topics including Art and Outsider Art, Dr Thomas Roske, Japanese Art Brut creators, Sarah Lombardi, Symbols and Script in Outsider Art, Dr Gisela Steinlechner, Works from the Kunstaus Kannen, Dr Erich Franz.

The Art Fair was well supported by the local community and collectors across Germany, and gave visitors an insight into the wide spectrum of contemporary European art that originates in the social context of art studios and galleries which give creative space to people with learning disabilities and mental ill health.
