The Reality of Small Differences is an exhibition of textile art by disabled artists based in Yorkshire.
This collection of work has been put together as a response to the inaccessibility of an exhibition at Temple Newsam of Grayson Perry’s tapestries; ‘The Vanity of Small Differences’. The exhibition will be displayed in a wing of Temple Newsam that has no lift. The only alternatives for disabled people wanting to see the tapestries in situ is to watch a documentary film, download an app or journey to Liverpool where the tapestries are currently on show – just added insult to injury.
The Reality of Small Differences will act as a showcase of talent and creativity of disabled people as a positive response to the decision to display the tapestries in this particular location in Leeds. The exhibition has been brought together by Gill Crawshaw with the support of Inkwell and Union105.
The exhibition is being held in 2 venues: Union 105- Chapeltown and Inkwell, and will be launched at both: Union 105 3-5pm, then on to Inkwell 5-7.30pm.
Both venues are wheelchair accessible, level/gently sloping entrances (apart from 1″ lip at the threshold at Inkwell), car parking nearby, accessible toilets.
