Our national touring exhibition Radical Craft: Alternative Ways of Making opened at Tullie House Museum & Art Gallery, Carlisle on 11 February 2017. The exhibition, which is presented in partnership with Craftspace and co-curated by Laura Hamilton, showcases artworks by historically renowned Outsider Artists alongside contemporary self-taught artists associated with Outside In. Inspired by objects from the Tullie House collections and artwork in Radical Craft, Prism Arts Studio Arts Group have created a trail of artistic responses that weave through Tullie House’s Border Galleries. We invited Prism Arts to takeover the Outside In Instagram account to document the installation of their trail. The following images are a few highlights from their takeover. You can view more by visiting Outside In’s Instagram account.
@peopleatprism are taking over! Just for a while as we install our Gallery Trail at @tulliehousemuseum and Art Gallery. This work will be alongside @craftspace_’s and @outsidein_uk’s Radical Craft: Alternative Ways of Making exhibition which opens at @tulliehousemuseum on February 11th. Here are some of our pieces framed and ready to hang. #instagramtakeover #prismtakeover #radicalcraftontour #prismarts
