Prompts

 

A prompt was sent to the artists each week, for 10 weeks, to create their artistic response. Each of the ten prompts was selected to represent a concept or a relationship that is integral to the themes of identity and prejudice. Prompts were deliberately ambiguous to allow for multiple and new ways for the artists to represent ideas, experiences and artistic forms around the theme.

All the prompts and artistic responses are shown below, week-by-week. We leave it upto you to decipher the meaning and significance of each piece.
