I AM is a collaborative exhibition by the artists in residence at Two4nine Community Gallery and Studio. Based in West Auckland, Two4nine provides a space for creativity and educational development for adolescents and adults with learning disabilities.
This exhibition presents a collection of self-portraits in a range of media, including painting, textiles and ceramics. These are accompanied by personal statements shared by each of the artists, which enable viewers to connect with the artists through both their artwork and their experiences.
While embracing neurodiversity, I AM also highlights the areas of similarity and connection within diversity. From the vibrant colours of textile works to the intricate details of sculptures, these works are a celebration of art, diversity, and commonality.
