SpareTyre Moving Portraits Exhibition

6 March 2018 to 10 March 2018 | Wednesday to Friday: 9.30am-5.30pm, Saturday: 12pm-5pm

Battersea, Dyson Gallery


Moving Portraits is a new series of video portraits exploring identity and body image produced by Spare Tyre, one of the UK's leading participatory arts charities. Produced as part of Heritage Lottery funded ST40 project and led by artist Josh Grigg. 40 years after Spare Tyre began with a project focusing on female body image, we revisit this theme of identity and representation in a project working with people with learning disabilities, older people and children. This exhibition showcases their work. 

During ten workshops across London and nationwide, participants were free to express their identities in any way they liked, using media such as collage, dance and drawing. These actions were recorded using green screen technology and are displayed as a video portrait, enabling participants to create unique modes of expression.

Private View: Tuesday 6 March, 6–8pm

This event has been organised by Spare Tyre. For more information, please contact Anne Duffau from the RCA School of Arts & Humanities.
