TOUCH: exhibition of deafblind artists

Circl

When the deafblind residents of Májak were first introduced to art, they had no idea what impact this would have on their lives. Now, fifteen years later, the inhabitants of Májak are true masters in expressing and entrusting their happiness, pain and frustration to the canvas. The works of art created in this way not only satisfy the makers with great satisfaction, but also anyone who has the opportunity to view the works. So come and watch us. We hope that you will come to celebrate with us at this special event; that you come to enjoy the artwork and the power with which it was created. You can delve further into this "outsider" art by participating in the panel discussion at the opening of the exhibition. Lees verder

On 20 November 2019, Victory Art is partnering up with ABN Amro Circl Amsterdam to introduce Slovakian deaf-blind artists of Maják to the Netherlands. These artists, despite their limitations, demonstrate how conquering life's hardships can result in awe-inspiring outcomes and in this case, gorgeous artworks. The art exhibition in Amsterdam will showcase all the various art pieces created by Maják residents and the evening will be all about these rare individuals who have proved just how important art is to the human experience. We will also discuss and deepen on the topic of outsider art by hearing three different speakers during the panel discussion. The exhibition is bound to offer an unforgettable and exhilarating experience to each visitor.
