A celebration of the beauty and value of the work of artists with learning disabilities and neurodiverse people, Henny Beaumont’s new exhibition show-cases the work of Rocket Artists and Superstar Arts
Artist, illustrator and political activist Henny Beaumont is bringing her Invisible People exhibition to Worthing Museum. This exhibition is a celebration and recognition of the beauty and value of the work of artists with learning disabilities and neurodiverse people. It show-cases the work of Brighton’s Rocket Artists and Worthing’s Superstar Arts alongside the work of Henny’s daughter Beth who is an artist and has Downs syndrome and Piper a young person who is profoundly deaf and autistic.
The exhibition will also show case ceramic work entitled A Place at the Table. As the title suggests this work explores what it means to have a place at the table, to feel entitled to occupy space at it, to be valued and listened to. The table is set with plates and cups designed by Rocket Artists and Superstar Arts in collaboration with Brigit Connolly ceramicist.
Henny’s work often explores the lesser represented members of society, such as women, victims of violence, and people with disabilities. Her political cartoons have explored controversial topics such as Covid-19 and Brexit. Invisible People has been curated as a result of Henny’s work as the artist is residence with the British Institute of Learning Disabilities (BILD) and Respond UK, whose mission is to deepen the health and social care sector’s understanding of trauma, and its impact on people with learning disabilities and autistic people
