Ryerson | Accessible Futures through Art | Eliza Chandler
7:00 PM, Friday 5 Apr 2019 (45 minutes)
Animated by the artworks of contemporary disability artists, my talk will explore the relationship between disability arts and disability rights and justice. I will demonstrate the transformative power of art created by disabled people to change how we are represented and understood, as well as the ways that we all create, exhibit, and experience art and culture. Recognizing disabled people as vital contributors will not only lead us to a more equitable and inclusive society, it will raise the standards of artistic excellence.
