During the live launch event BayArt Curators Maggie James and Phil Nicol, in conversation with Rachel Gadsden and Deluge Collective, will introduce you to the Storm Exhibition and will discuss the themes and ideas behind the creation of the artworks & performance films.
Rachel Gadsden (UK) is a disabled and visually impaired artist and director. Expressionist in approach, she creates solo exhibitions, performances and collaborative social engagement art projects with disabled, vulnerable and mainstream communities nationally and internationally, through painting, performance, digital film, with the object of developing cross-cultural dialogues considering universal notions of humanity.
The Deluge Collective is a diverse international collaboration of artists, musicians and writers. The Collective explore ways that expression moves between our individual artistic practices, to reveal deeper ideas of shared humanity. Underpinning the creative process is the ambition to embed disability access as a central part of our aesthetic vision
