South London art collective Intoart was founded in 2001 by Guy Allott, Sam Jones and Ella Ritchie. Here the group present their distinctive approach to studio practice, that includes people who have a learning disability. The exhibition includes new work by Ntiense Eno Amooquaye, Selina Helene, Mawuena Kattah, Doreen McPherson, Philomena Powell and Clifton Wright with four short films which document the lives and working processes of the artists.
Alongside this exhibition, Whitechapel Gallery has commissioned theorist and art historian Malcolm Bull to reflect on the group’s work. Bull has used language articulated in the Intoart studio for a new text considering their collective working method. His commentary does not attempt to provide a definitive description of Intoart’s approach, rather, it offers scope for further reflection.
See the Revolutionary Art Exhibit is part of the Gallery’s Education Programme, that engages with artists to investigate and present new modes of education and community practice.
