In January I exhibited in the group show Open All Hours, the 2024 Shape Open exhibition.

28 November - 2 December 2023

Private View: 18:00 - 20:00, Tuesday, 28 November 2023


I will be exhibiting in Cura, In Transit's first in person exhibition in Manchester at Smolensky Gallery, accompanied by an online exhibition.

Cura takes from the Latin word which means ‘to take care’ or ‘to help’. Cura showcases the work of women artists Arabel Lebrusan, Charlie Fitz, Latifah A. Stranack, Mira Hirtz and Naomi Harwin. These artists undertook In Transit’s residency where they explored how access can be a creative and intellectual consideration in their practice - moving past the checklist for meeting the needs of disabled audiences in museums and galleries. 

This exhibition is more than a display of art; it is a living research experiment. We invite you to be part of the process, to learn alongside us, and to help us test the effectiveness of creative access on audience engagement.

Unlimited Micro commission 

On Wednesday 21st June 7:00pm and Thursday 22nd June 7:00pm, Touretteshero will be performing their new show Burnt Out in Biscuit Land at the Riviera International Centre, Torquay in association with Doorstep Arts as part of the Collaborative Touring Network .

To accompany this I have been commissioned by Unlimited and Doorstep Arts to make a short film piece and small exhibition which share themes with the show.

My new work has been adapted from a short story that I originally had published in Drawn Poorly zine issue 7.

Blueberry Blood and Bubblegum Joints is a modern folktale film piece and mixed medium exhibition by artist Charlie Fitz. Set on the coast, the film tells the story of a shielder who creates a companion out of everyday objects; exploring themes of invisibility, isolation, resilience, community and disability pride.


The film and the exhibition will be at the same location as Burnt Out in Biscuit Land, so get your tickets via Doorstep Arts for the Touretteshero show and see my work there too!

There are also live stream tickets available for people who can't make it there in person. Tickets here.

In The Mirror - Shape Arts Open

Opens 30th June, online

I will be exhibition artwork in the Shape Open.

"Back for its tenth consecutive year, twenty-five international disabled and non-disabled artists respond to 2022’s curatorial theme: ‘In the mirror' 

In culture, mirrors are used to symbolise truth. It is also said that art is a mirror turned on society, reflecting the issues and mood of the current moment. In this way, the artist interrogates and sheds light, revealing things that might otherwise be disguised or hidden. 

For disabled people, however, too often what they find in the cultural mirror is distorted, filled with representations that are not only untrue, but harmful, damaging to individuals and communities.

This exhibition treats the subject of disability differently, using the lens of lived experience. Taking place in an age when mirrors are everywhere, even in our phones, it challenges the processes and assumptions that forge our ideas of who we are, and how we are shown."

I got to take part in the music video for Different

We Are Birmingham

28 Apr - 30 Oct 2022

I am a featured artists at Birmingham Museum & Art Gallery as it reopens with an exciting radical transformation of its iconic Round Room.

We Are Birmingham will reflect the people of 21st Century Birmingham. Presenting a vivid celebration of the city that Birmingham is now, as well as aspirations of what the city could become, We Are Birmingham is a collaboration between a group of six young people of colour from Don’t Settle and Birmingham Museums.

Created using items from Birmingham’s collections the exhibition forms part of a culmination of a three-year programme to address representation and complex histories within the heritage sector, and to better understand how Birmingham celebrates and reflects on itself in an innovative and contemporary way.

Birmingham 2022 Festival presents We Are Birmingham. Curated by Birmingham Museums Trust and Don’t Settle in partnership with Beatfreeks. Generously supported by Arts Council England and The National Lottery Heritage Fund.

The video essay also explores space and time in the film, employing Michel Foucault's conception of heterotopias and Alison Kafer's notion of crip time."

I will be delivering a work-in-progress video essay on "Narratives of Space and Time in Unrest" remotely at the 5th B-Film Symposium at Birmingham University on the 20th April 2022 on Zoom. Afterwards the video essay will be available to watch.


Nineteen forty - 2022

18 March - 17 April 2022

Preview: 6pm (MY), 10am (UK), 19 March 2022

In Transit is delighted to present ‘Nineteen forty - 2022’, showcasing works by artists - Pablo Paillole, Yasmine Aminanda, Abdul Shakir and Charlie Fitz – as part of the pilot residency. The exhibition explores our relationship with the past and how this informs the way we view ourselves, others, and build the future.

The presented works use archival structures as a tool for questioning the worlds we find ourselves within. Some works examine identity and representation by bringing to the forefront issues such as, the extent to which social and ethnic groups are present in mass-media depictions, and how these portrayals are being shaped.

This exhibition is co-curated by Celina Loh  and Elizabeth Low. 

Image credit: Detail of still from ‘March 2022: Intransit’ (2022) by Yasmine Aminanda. 

Join us for the preview where we will walk through the exhibition and describe each work in further detail!

I am one of the artists in HYSTERICAL, an exhibition co-curated by Bee Illustrates and Eliza Hatch of Cheer Up Luv for women's history month.

The exhibition is supporting UN Women UK and Mermaids Charity.

It opens for the PV on the 24th of March and opens to the public on the 25th and runs till the 3rd of April!

LOCATION: no format gallery Moulding Lane, Deptford, London

"It is a celebration of women and marginalised voices using art for activism, HYSTERICAL is a community centred group show featuring artists whose work is centred on activism and uplifting the voices of those around them. The theme of the show is to subvert the notion of "dramatic" or "hysterical" women** and to reclaim words that have been historically used to silence, discredit and oppress people of marginalised genders when speaking on issues they face."

Press: the exhibition has been featured in It's Nice That and Diva Magazine.

Since March I have been part of Triad³ an ACE funded arts practice trio which centres collective care. 

Triad³ is an intersectional trio of disabled womxn creators. We all found working as freelance artists whilst shielding through a pandemic isolating. So when Ellie invited Jacqui and I to work with her, we all decided to create a support network for one another.
