Babeworld x utopian_realism

In Spring 2024 we will host Babeworld’s biggest exhibition to date. Working in collaboration with sound artist utopian_realism they will present a project that reflects on the ever ubiquitous need within the arts to have new and innovative ideas.

Told through the eyes of a neurodivergent coded character, the project plays on the structures of the gallery and art world, asking us to question and renegotiate how we define what is considered ’new’, ‘exciting’, and ‘taste making’ in the arts.

As a collective Babeworld seeks to create a more representative art world through the creation of art, fundraising, grants, and facilitation of events, especially for those who are marginalised in the arts. With an emphasis on collaboration and co-creation, Babeworld’s practice focuses on themes of political and societal identity, specifically disability/access, neurodivergence, sex work, and race.

The project will comprise of an exhibition in the gallery and a series of events that connect in particular with a neurodiverse public.
