Showcasing artwork by disabled and deaf artists since 1993, Atypical Gallery is the only permanent exhibition space on the island of Ireland dedicated specifically to highlighting the work of disabled and D/deaf artists. Atypical Gallery provides a welcoming, accessible environment for both emerging and established artists practising across the visual arts spectrum.
As well as providing an exciting and challenging programme of visual arts exhibitions, the gallery also serves as a forum for the education and discussion of disability-led art and culture. Beginning in 2018, Atypical Gallery will host a series of talks, screenings, readings and events around disability art, contemporary practice, socially engaged and participatory art, and disability-led art and curation.
Our aim is to broaden public perceptions of disabled and D/deaf art practice, to champion excellence in visual arts practice, and to support and encourage the professional development and acceptance of disabled and D/deaf artists in Northern Ireland.
