To mark the launch of OFF QUAY, a unique creative hub with stunning Docklands Views run by Ugly Duck Spaces, CHROM-ART curates ‘Common People’, an exhibition about all of us.
It’s a fact that we are all spinning at a thousand miles per hour in a ball with a core that’s hotter than the surface of the sun.
It’s a fact that we are all made of stardust, as there is solid science behind the statement that almost every element on Earth was formed at the heart of a star.
As unbelievable as they sound, these facts are true and we believe them. As unbelievable as it sounds, many of us still don’t believe we are all the same, and as such, we are all equal.
Common is not the opposite of Special. Common is the opposite of Separation. Reject antagonisms and embrace what you share with everyone else, the commonness that makes every single one of us special.
Common People is a narration of oneness through portraits and depictions of ordinary people by 21 extraordinary artists
