Curator Magda Archer says: "I was looking to produce a show with a funfair vibe…that is, something for everyone who visits. All of these Artists interest me, their ideas and interpretation of a subject or theme. I think it is a fascinating group of people and I’ve been really excited and encouraged to see the things they’re making for this show.The title #notquitedisney stems from a few ‘Disney' things I’ve collected over the years...things that are ‘a bit wrong’ interest me more than, say, a perfect replication of a Disney character…they seem to have more soul. People can still see ‘what it’s meant to be’ but there is more of a challenge to the eye and the mind."
