17 artists with autism spectrum conditions and Asperger syndrome have been invited to contribute works exploring their relationships with architectural landscapes, real or imaginary. The exhibition features the work of artists from six different countries, all with unique backgrounds, and techniques vary from painting, drawing and sculpture through to sound installation, and site-specific commissions.
The invited artists have approached the topic in divergent ways; some works objectively mirror selected environments, whilst others centre on the exploration of abstract ideas and subjective interpretations of architectural landscapes. The exhibition juxtaposes these different responses, thereby developing unexpected relationships and narratives between the works.
An artist talk will take place where some of the exhibiting artists will be discussing their practice and their work in Myscape. A publication will be launched which documents the exhibition and comprises of critical essays.
