The Shape Open is an annual call-out for disabled and non-disabled artists to submit work in response to a disability focused theme.

This year’s theme ‘Disability Reassessed’ generated submissions from an exciting international range of artists. The 2013 Open showcase a multi-disciplinary selection of works which includes painting, sculpture, textile, digital art and photography. The work represents a rich diversity of opinions, reactions and responses to this highly political and often deeply personal theme, but is united by a clarity, energy and commitment to re-interpreting and reassessing disability.

Yinka Shonibare MBE, Shape Open Patron says:
'The Shape Open provides a fantastic platform for disabled artists to show their work. Such exhibitions offer great opportunities for artists to be discovered by institutions and large audiences. Similar exhibitions have helped to contribute to the development of my own personal career.’
