Beyond Boundaries: Art by Email

Posted by on Mar 7, 2017 in Exhibition


Yorkshire Sculpture Park 7th to 29th January 2017

Artists based in the Middle East who would find it difficult to travel to the UK were invited to propose artwork that can be sent by email.

The exhibition Beyond Boundaries: Art by Email was curated by Yorkshire Sculpture Park (UK Museum of the Year 2014) and ArtRole in partnership with the Caspian Arts Foundation.

We recognise that it is complicated and prohibitive for worldwide artists to work in the UK, but are keen to offer a platform and share great art with YSP’s 500,000 annual visitors. Beyond Boundaries: Art by Email celebrated the fact that ideas and art can travel even if people cannot.

Proposals of photography and film were invited, but also sculpture files that can be 3D printed, performance by instruction and other creative responses.

The exhibition featured work that not only shared the realities of current situations in various countries such as Iraq, Syria, Iran, Palestine but also the resilience, hope, and creativity of artists throughout the region, whatever their circumstances.
