Artist talks at dis

Inaugural exhibition of Art Beyond Sight's Art and Disability Institute


The Gallery at Industry City

274 36th Street, Sunset Park, Brooklyn, NY 11232


Saturday, July 8, 12:30–5pm


The inaugural artists of ABS's Art and Disability Institute converge their diverse body of work under the banner of dis, three letters that can reverse, revoke, rebuke, rebuff or, perhaps, release social stereotypes. These artists redefine "dis" as both a subjective and objective experience. Their personal relationship to disability falls along a broad continuum, as does the relationship of disability to their work. Collectively, they form a cross section of the many ways artists working with and around disability contribute towards broadening conversations on the potential of art.
