Art from the Margins (AFTM) presents its latest exhibition AFTM goes POP! at the AFTM Gallery & Studios in Fortitude Valley on Saturday 23 November 2019.

AFTM, a creative initiative of Wesley Mission Queensland, supports, exhibits and promotes the work of artists living with adversity, mental health issues, physical or intellectual disabilities, or experiencing homelessness and social isolation.

Coinciding with Social Inclusion Week 2019, AFTM goes POP! showcases ‘Pop Art’ themed visual art, presenting works with attitude that promote this artistic movement and its legacy.

This exhibition reflects a commitment to presenting a diversity of artists and media, including painting, drawing, sculpture, installation, and digital media.

With its distinct colour, clear figuration, neat outlines, bold text and popular subject matter, the ‘Pop Art’ movement generated some of the most recognisable images of modern culture and continues to shape our society’s cultural understanding to this day.

Reflecting on the theme of this year’s Social Inclusion Week, Connect, Collaborate and Celebrate, AFTM is launching this exhibition alongside an all-day market. The AFTM Pop-Up Art Market will feature artworks and merchandise to suit any Christmas budget. All sales go directly to AFTM Outsider Artists.

Everyone is invited to this FREE community event from 10am-4pm, Saturday 23 November at AFTM Gallery & Studios, 136 Brunswick Street, Fortitude Valley.
