Jess Davies and Adam Wilson
Underlined is a project led by Hull-based artists Jess Davies and Adam Wilson. Underlined is concerned with the idea of cultural exclusion and asks, why do so many people feel that they cannot be creative?
The project involved Jess and Adam considering how they’d use their artistic skills in a way that would be accessible to a wide range of people, then organising and delivering a series of workshops with adults to encourage and enable participants to explore their own creativity. The outcomes from these sessions, as well as work created by Jess and Adam inspired by the project, has been brought together in this exhibition, with support from Artlink Hull.
Underlined explores how working together on collaborative pieces can break down barriers to making artwork and encourage reciprocal learning between everyone involved. As well as considering how creating together influences how we see ourselves, each other and the wider world.
