This exciting installation of specially commissioned works from the artists Imogen Bright Moon, Corrina Eastwood and Rosamaria Kostic Cisneros, is the latest in our ground-breaking Gypsy Maker project, an initiative that supports the development of innovatively created artistic works by Gypsy, Roma and Traveller artists. The Gypsy Maker 5 project expands the work of the RCAC by continuing to engage GRT communities with the wider public in an ongoing dialogue about the ways in which art continues to inform our lives today.
The exhibition is commissioned by the RCAC with support from the Arts Council of Wales.
The Gypsy Maker Project is an exciting opportunity for us to connect with a new audience. The project’s mission addresses one of g39’s core aims, namely to raise awareness of contemporary practice – in this instance the practice of artists with Romani heritage who often don’t have access to the many artist networks that connect with g39 and other creative communities. Anthony Shapland, Creative Director of g39.
We are so proud to continue our ground-breaking work with GRT artists, with support from the Arts Council of Wales. This project will strengthen the role of Gypsies, Roma and Travellers on the arts scene in Wales, the UK and beyond. Isaac Blake; Director of the Romani Cultural & Arts Company
The ground-breaking work of the RCAC in supporting Gypsy, Roma and Traveller artists is unparalleled. The Gypsy Maker project is unique worldwide in commissioning new bodies of work by GRT artists thus enabling the production of significant new knowledge from an underrepresented group and making a valuable contribution to international contemporary art and cultural discourse. Dr Daniel Baker.
