Ugly is a showcase of work from emerging artists involved in the Front Up Emerge '17 program, an engagement project developed by Front Up, an arts and culture hub founded by Ability Options, which connects professional artists and emerging practitioners living with disability. 

This Ideas Platform project is the culmination of a collaboration between the Art Gallery of New South Wales, Front Up and Artspace. The nine artists involved in the program have worked closely with artists George Tillianakis and Liam Benson to develop their practice and take on professional development opportunities. 

Here, the artists use the Ideas Platform as the name suggests, to showcase ideas and process in the development of new work. This exhibition interrogates an element that had been discussed throughout the program, the theme of Ugly.

This outreach project is a collaboration between Front Up, Art Gallery of New South Wales and Artspace.
