An exhibition of artworks by Gypsies and Travellers.
Using a variety of artistic media from paintings to catapults, knitting to sculpture, the boundaries between the fine and applied arts have disappeared, bringing together aesthetic materials that are both decorational and functional.
The name 'Gorgios' is the name that Romany Gypsies give to the non-Romany community, and the title of the exhibition 'No Gorgios' bears direct reference to the 'no traveller' signs that used to inhabit our villages, towns and high streets. The 'no travellers' signs may have come down, but Romany people still remain on the periphery of society and are perceived by the public as being thieves, beggars and a general blot on modern civilisation.
All exhibitors answered a call for Gypsy and Traveller visual artists by The Open Society Institute in Budapest.
