The Art of Disability Culture
Artists with disabilities dispelling myths, dissolving barriers and disrupting prejudice
Thirty years after the passing of the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) disability arts organizations, individual artists, and informal groups or artist collectives are challenging expectations and claiming their seats at the table, their slots in the gallery, or their time at the microphone. Every artist or designer featured in this exhibition has one or more visible or invisible disabilities. Far from presenting a single monolithic point of view, they use a wide range of techniques and approaches in personal ways to investigate the complex, nuanced and wide range of experiences and identities that contribute to disability culture.
