Shadowlight Artists: Rising in Oxford


Price: Free



Film Oxford presents the latest work by The Shadowlight Artists, a group of six artists with learning disabilities based in Oxfordshire. A group show across two venues, Arts at the Old Fire Station and Modern Art Oxford, this exhibition showcases work spanning installation, painting, digital media and theatrical production. The exhibition celebrates the group’s creative growth since their formation in 2009 with an artistically ambitious body of work that re-frames disability arts.

The exhibition features a series of dynamic new works by the core group, alongside two new films produced by the wider Shadowlight Associates group.

Mark Hemsworth’s prints represent a move into large-scale works, reflecting his obsession with collecting images; while a new installation by Richard Hunt expands his painting practice into the realms of multimedia installation. A new animation by Tom Breach merges autobiographical experience with fantasy; and Lucy Skuce’s video installation blends her obsession with construction and the domestic environment. Danny Smith’s new film expands his interest into ancestral memory and the cultures of prehistory.

Modern Art Oxford is Open 10am – 5pm Tuesday to Saturday and Sunday 12pm – 5pm & Arts at the Old Fire Station is Open Tuesday to Saturday 11am-6pm

As part of the latest work by the group, Shadowlight artist Russell Highsmith’s play Singles Night will also be on at Arts at the Old Fire Station on 19 and 20 September.
