We are approaching the 10th anniversary of ArtBrut Gallery & Studio. For the associated artists this was time of experiments, artistic evolutions, learning how to study ourselves, entering into an uneasy dialogue with the world, reacting to its changes and events. At the same time the artists were courageously wandering deep into the realms of their desires, thoughts and fears. In their works, they occasionally revealed us their innermost enigmas, not easy to air truths, hidden secrets. They shared their worlds with us.

The Beyond Taboo V exhibition inevitably tackles the issue of time. Its continuous lapse can induce an attempt to stop it. In order to feel real, we look back, we compare, we recollect who we were and what we were thinking, in which direction our thoughts and acts were wandering. We reach for ‘back then' in order to see 'today.' Summary is a difficult process of asking about the meaning of our efforts and accomplishments, besides posing questions about the passing time. However, for some artists the summaries seem irrelevant. In this broad topic the past is mixed up with the present, and 'today, here and now' apparently seems a more interesting issue.

The exhibition has been organised within a public task entitled:RUNNING ARTBRUT GALLERY AND STUDIO FOR SOCIAL & CULTURAL INCLUSION FOR PERSONS WITH INTELLECTIAL DISABILITIES AND MENTAL DISORDERS IN THE YEARS 2016–2018 financed by the Municipality of Wroclaw.
