Parkinson’s-centred exhibition opens at The Point Eastleigh

A new visual arts exhibition centring on people with Parkinson’s is now on display at The Point Eastleigh.  

Who we are now, and then… Collective IDentity 2021 is an exhibition of 17 works of visual art, photography and film sharing perspectives on identity from the lives of dancers with the condition.

The exhibition in the Leigh Road venue features work by four artists - Sara Hibbert, David Armes, Emma Brown and Edwina Kung – who were inspired by watching dancers with Parkinson’s including members of The Point’s Dance for Parkinson’s class.

The work draws attention to the visibility of people with Parkinson’s in society, people with Parkinson’s as artists, and as the subject of art and artistic enquiry.

Collective IDentity (CID) has been led by Danielle Teale and funded by Arts Council England.  

The exhibition will be at The Point until Friday 18 February 2022. The Point is owned and operated by Eastleigh Borough Council.

Charlotte Hall, Creative Director of The Point Eastleigh, said: “It is a pleasure and a privilege to have this beautiful exhibition on display at The Point and to be able to share its important meaning to our visitors and community.

“I am so pleased that participants of our Dance with Parkinson’s class were able to contribute and that together with Danielle Teale and her team of talented artists, we are able to shine light on this important topic and the ability that creative projects have to improve people’s lives.”
