Project Ability: l’Art Brut en Ecosse

Rehan Yousuf - (42x59cm pastel and ink)

Project Ability is proud to be exhibiting work at the annual printemps de l’ art contemporain, as part of the Marseille expo. Back in March of 2017 we were approached by the director of the Polysemie Gallery in Marseille, asking if we would be interested in showing with them during the spring of contemporary art, a city-wide arts festival, in 2018.

We were delighted by this invitation, and, together with the director of the Polysemie Gallery, we selected a small number of Project Ability artists to represent us for the exhibition. The selected artists cross over between both our ReConnect and our Aspire workshops.

In return, Project Ability will be hosting an exhibition of work by artists represented by the Polysemie Gallery, later this month. We are excited about this new partnership, and the chance to share our artists’ work with Marseille during this prestigious arts festival.

Congratulations to the exhibiting artists: John Cocozza, Tommy Kemp, Esme Macleod, Tommy Mason, Angela McLauchlin, Michael McMullen, Robert Reddick, Lewis Scott, Rehan Yousuf.

Project Ability would like to thank François Vertadier, director of the Polysemie Gallery, for this opportunity.
