This week I sat down virtually with Sean Lee, Director of Programming at Tangled Art + Disability, to talk about radically accessible curation, the transformative possibilities of disability as disruption, and the exciting work of Tangled and Bodies in Translation. So many links!
- To learn more about Tangled Art + Disability, check out recent exhibits like “Body Farm” and “HIDDEN”
- Check out the work of Bodies in Translation: Activist Art, Technology & Access, including their Cripping the Arts symposium and their Vital Practices in the Arts resource guide!
- Here are some other references Sean made:
- Yinka Shonibare on disability as the last avant-garde
- Eliza Chandler on “Cripping Community” (with bonus references to Kelly Fritsch’s understanding of cripping as “open[ing] up desire for what disability disrupts”)
- José Esteban Muñoz on “Queerness as Horizon”
- Amanda Cachia on “the politics of creative access”
- The Smithsonian’s guidelines for accessible exhibition design
- An FAQ on relaxed performances from Tourettes Hero aka Jessica Thom

- Tobin Siebers on disability aesthetics
- Mia Mingus defining disability justice
- Ableism as defined by Talila A. Lewis and Dustin Gibson
