Charity Exhibition: An Infinitely Beautiful Mind
Autistica, the UK's leading autism research charity, and Deutsche Bank's Charity of the Year 2016-17, is delighted to present a unique exhibition in celebration of Deutsche Bank's partnership with Frieze. Autistica have collaborated with curators Mehta Bell projects who draw on a powerful selection of artworks which explore a different way of seeing the world.
An Infinitely Beautiful Mind celebrates the creativity and idiosyncrasies of a collection of engaging artists. These artists share a collective desire to represent human experience through detailed and highly laborious artistic techniques. Fusing artworks from a diverse selection of artists ranging from modern masters, contemporary and emerging talents right through to Outsider artists, this exhibition transcends conventions, demonstrating that autistic artists sit comfortably alongside the established mainstream.
These talented creatives see the world through a different lens. It is often said that people with autism are wired differently, and the images they create appear to be filtered through an alternative channel, almost presenting a parallel world. It is precisely this idea of individuals perceiving things in a different way that connect all the artists in the exhibition, whether they are autistic or not. This selection of disparate artists highlights a mutual energy and commitment to creating striking works of art that are complex, intricate and breathtakingly executed.
The exhibition features a specially commissioned piece by Stuart Semple, based on his near-death experience at the age of 19 and his resulting anxiety and depression. Stuart Semple's piece will be the only painting he is creating in 2016.
