To You From Super Me – exhibition

Wednesday 8th June sees the official launch of  TO YOU FROM SUPER ME at The Public in West Bromwich from 6pm..

Marvel/DC comic book illustrator John McCrea (Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, the Hulk, Spider Man) and celebrated image-maker Chris Keenan have collaborated with Friction Arts to work with a Sandwell youth group to produce a knock-out contemporary video installation and exhibition taking place at The Public throughout June.

The exhibition celebrates the extraordinary imagination of eight talented individuals with autism, from the Windmill Young People’s Centre, and offers a fascinating insight into the ‘superpowers’ of these, often misunderstood, young people.

The finished work includes an over-sized, three-screen video projection along with original images drawn by John McCrea of each young person who took part. Animator and media artist Babis Alexiadis captured the art process to produce a documentary film to accompany the piece.

The project was part-funded via the Aiming High initiative; a government programme aimed at transforming services for disabled children and their families.
