Our very own Cameron Morgan has been selected as one of the 9 artists out of over 150 applicants to be commissioned by Unlimited. His project will be ‘TV Classics Part 1’, which will take the form of an exhibition and a series of public artworks that celebrate learning disability culture. Unlimited have provided over £500,000 to the 9 selected artists to create their work.
Cameron is fascinated by popular culture, in particular a love of 70s and 80s television, films and music – an interest shared by people with learning disabilities the world over. Working with iconic television imagery from the 1930s onwards, Cameron will spend six months in Project Ability’s studio creating ten paintings that honour the past eight decades of television history.
Cameron was delighted to be one of the very few selected:
“Being an artist is what I have always wanted. It’s a different ball game (this project) and I am really looking forward to it. There will be a lot of shenanigans with Jason and a lot of hard work – looking forward to getting into it and shaking a leg.”
Congratulations, Cameron, and we look forward to seeing the new work take shape!
