We'll be officially launching with an exhibition in Spring 2023 and going on to pursue creative projects in East London. We plan to be working with our broader network of creatives as far away as Istanbul, the Caucasus and Central Asia.
The Liminal Arts team has experience of work in the fine arts and the commercial graphic design industry over many years spanning a variety of cultures and contexts.
Liminal means 'a threshold' between one state and a new one. It's typically associated with a rite of passage. During such rites a person stands on the threshold between their estblished way, community or identity and a new one.
It's been suggested that "during liminal periods of all kinds, social hierarchies may be reversed or temporarily dissolved, continuity of tradition may become uncertain, and future outcomes once taken for granted may be thrown into doubt. The dissolution of order during liminality creates a fluid, malleable situation that enables new institutions and customs to become established"*
Liminal Arts aims to be such a space, where creatives are able to explore themes, processes and ideas together.
