Outside In's latest exhibition Nama Ä€to: Japanese Outsider Art is now open at Pallant House Gallery, Chichester.
The exhibition brings the work of three Japanese visual artists to the UK for the very first time. Koji Nishioka’s intuitive musical scores related to existing pieces of music but which a pianist may not easily read; Makoto Okawa’s depiction of happiness, sadness and pleasure in his 3D ‘Makoot’ dolls and colourful drawings; Yasuyuki Ueno’s world where preconceived notions of female characters and fashion objects are challenged. All of the artists have learning disabilities, and are supported by Atelier Corners in Osaka Japan, an organisation supporting disabled artists to realise their potential.
The exhibition is supported by Unlimited (delivered by Shape and Artsadmin); celebrating the work of disabled artists, using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England with additional funds from the British Council.
