Black Disabled Artists’ Perspectives on Art and Advocacy

March 30 @ 6:00 PM 7:30 PM

115 West Chicago Avenue
Chicago, Illinois 60654 United States

Join us for a conversation with the 2022 3Arts/Bodies of Work Residency Fellow Antonio Davis and the 2021 Fellow Justin Cooper for a conversation about art and advocacy. In this talk, Davis will share his work-in-progress ideas about disability representational conundrums by asking questions such as, how to present the capabilities of disabled people without inadvertently reinforcing the Super Crip stereotype? How to integrate disability narratives in art practice without being reduced to an inspiration or a charity case? Together, Davis and Cooper will discuss the realities of Black disabled artists who desire to make a living in today’s world. 

Access Information: 

This event will provide ASL interpretation and real-time captioning (CART).
