Means of Egress includes explorations by artists participating in the Art and Disability Residency (ADR) of Art Beyond Sight (ABS), a non-profit organization that supports access and inclusion to the arts and culture for people living with mental health conditions or any physical or cognitive disability. By focusing on critical studies and theory, the program encourages the participating artists (Jordana BernsteinEzra BenusShannon FinneganJerron HermanJeff KasperKevin Quiles Bonilla, and Madison Zalopany), to emphasize professional development as well as creative practice.

The exhibition reveals the breadth of ideas and processes that emerged from the cohort, which were developed independently and collectively through weekly seminars and actions. While participation in ADR provides engagement and support structures for the artists, it also encourages the development of singular voices within the community. After making careful aesthetic and technical choices, each artist creates work that emanates from a position of power not paralysis. The resulting exhibition represents the diversity within their community.

Opening Reception: October 4, 6:00-8:00pm

Viewings by appointment only. Contact Claire Altizer for more information.
