The IKOUII OPEN is an annual virtual group art exhibition with both disabled and non-disabled artists. Artists who practice in a variety of mediums or discipline at any stage in their art career are encouraged to submit work in response to a disability-centered theme. The goal of the open is to activate social movements, educate, inspire, and evoke change within the arts and disability communities.
IKOUII OPEN 2021: Without Labels will be open for public viewing at Ikouii.com on June 20th. All artwork on view will be for sale and available for purchase via ikouii.com.
