Featured Artists

SHAPE SHIFTERS highlights practices that navigate shapes as a rhizomatic pattern which allows for multiple, non-hierarchical entry and exit points in art representation and interpretation.

It is a manifesto to the power, freedom and humour to be harnessed in creative self-expression.

Curators Julia Drouhin and Maria Blackwell have been working through Mosaic Support Services for the past year with this group of artists living with disability to present Shape Shifters.

SHAPE SHIFTERS will premiere on November 2022 at Rosny Schoolhouse Gallery.
