Understanding Autism Through Creativity:
Brought to You by My Curated Information Blog, Create & Be Well
This is an extraordinary exhibition of work by young people with autism, the results of a collaborative project in China. We don’t often know much about the China beyond the world of politics and economics. This article, with attached photographs, from China Daily offers a glimpse of another aspect of Chinese life. The images are of paintings by Iris Grace, a young artist with autism from the UK. I have been following her progress for two years.
“The Echoes of Islands exhibition, which opened to the public at the Riverside Art Museum in Beijing on Nov 19, features 291 images jointly created by 31 autistic children and 33 photographers. They were selected from more than 3,000 submissions created in both Beijing and Hangzhou from June to October.”
