Regeneration: a public conversation on disability art, activism, and access at Gallery 400

Tuesday, October 16, 2018

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Presented in conjunction with Chicago Disability Activism, Arts, and Design: 1970s to Today, Regeneration is a group conversation that explores the emergence of the disability art and culture movement in Chicago and its development over the past thirty years. Each panelist represents a specific generation and strand in the movement with insights on how unique aesthetic choices respond to their individual and socio-political environments.

Artists include Andy Slater, Barak adé Soleil, Mike Ervin, Sky Cubacub, and Riva Lehrer. Together with moderator Carrie Sandahl, these five artists discuss their approach to art-making and how their activism has impacted their art practice and contributed to the development of Chicago’s international reputation as an innovative hub of disability art and culture.

Real-time captioning (CART), ASL interpreters, and personal assistants will be present. For more information, please contact Gallery 400 at 312.996.6114 or gallery400@uic.edu
