TO MARK the forming of Disrupt Space Limited, a visual arts agency established to represent emerging black visual artists, this week sees the launch of Conversations in Colour.
Taking place at The Department Store in Brixton, Conversations in Colour will feature a showcase display of curated works of art that spotlight their brilliance and the abundance of diverse talent that exists within the UK.
Explaing the motive for bringing about Disrupt Space Limited, founder Paul Reid said: “The community has a tremendous tradition of innovation, creativity and community self help.
“We’ve done excellently over the years in responding to the challenges but this narrative needs to be complimented with more examples of economic success.”
He added: “Disrupt Space as a concept recognises that space and place creation is shaped by the powerful and by those that express themselves the loudest. Although this reality can be the impetus that inspires artists, it can also perpetuate excluded and under-represented voices.
“From the hoardings around a building site, through to the authority of the corporate board room, Disrupt Space goes beyond a splash of colour on an otherwise perfectly decorated wall.”
The works of art will be open to the public for three days from the October 11 – 13 (12 – 5pm). Further information is available through eventbrite https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/conversations-in-colour-tickets74478327683
