Join us to celebrate the outstanding artwork exhibited in the Shape Open 2014 with a closing party and awards ceremony, at which the winning artist will be selected and announced by Shape Open patron Yinka Shonibare MBE RA. The artist who has produced the most exceptional work will be chosen from over 30 contributors, and will be presented with a £1000 prize. 

There will also be a People's Choice Award, with the artist whose work received the most votes from the public being awarded £250.

Currently in its third year, the Shape Open is an annual call-out for artists to submit work of any medium in response to a disability-focused theme – this year, ‘[In]Visible’.

If you haven’t yet been to visit this exciting and varied exhibition, the closing party is a fantastic final opportunity to do so, as well as a chance to meet some of the artists in person. ‘[In]Visible’ features painting and sculpture, video and photographic works, exploring the theme from a multitude of viewpoints.

As well as offering alternative perspectives on disability, the competition and showcase have helped many disabled artists to further their careers, opening doors to funders and further exhibition opportunities. Previous open artists have gone on to exhibit at Southbank Centre, The Victoria and Albert museum and more.

The Shape Open 2014 '[In]Visible' exhibition will remain open until 31 January.
