Disability/Arts/NYC: A Convening
Saturday, January 28, 2017 1:00-4:30pm

The New School Starr Foundation Hall, U L102
63 Fifth Avenue New York, NY 10003

In the last few months, a group of NYC-based artists, activists, and academics have formed the Disability/Arts/NYC Task Force. DANT is forming around a unique moment for disability arts and artistry. We are witnessing bold and brilliant artwork across genres and disciplines that take up disability as a profound aesthetic and analytic value. And yet, there are persistent obstacles that limit the possibilities for disabled artists and artistry. DANT is in the process of naming this unique moment and developing a movement for disability arts to thrive in New York City.

As part of this ongoing work, we are hosting a groundbreaking convening that will bring together disabled artists, members of the broader arts community, and representatives from some of NYCís city agencies. We will use the convening to strengthen the coalition of disabled artists and allies while also beginning to craft a disability/arts platform for future policies and practices in NYC.

DANT is deeply grateful to our sponsors, which currently include: Dance/NYC, the Council for the Study of Disability at New York University, the Mayorís Office for People with Disabilities, The Eugene Lang College Arts Program at The New School, Inclusive Fashion & Design Collective, with other sponsors pending.

We hope you can join us. Participation in this event is by invitation only. Please let us know if there is someone you believe should be present.

Registration: Please RSVP as soon as possible by clicking here.
Seating is limited. Accessibility and accommodation information can be found in the registration system through the link above. We strongly believe that significant change can occur in practice and policy in New York City, and that our art, given the light of day, can have an impact on disabled peopleís social, cultural and political positioning and authority. We look forward to seeing you on January 28.

A collaboration between Project&, the social justice and art organization headed by Jane Saks, and renowned war photographer Lynsey Addario, based on the Studs Terkel archives on AMerican Work. Saks and Addario interviewed 24 individuals across the US to discuss what works means to them, and how they perform their diverse fields, after which Addario created large-scale photographs of each subject.

The list of subjects and panelists includes an amazing roster of luminaries. The artist is thrilled to have been chosen to be part of this project, in studio-practice photos that depict the artist in collaboration with painter Tim Lowly.

Photographs and an extensive schedule of events will be featured at the Harold Washington Public Library on South State Street and Van Buren. For a full run-down of the project, click below. All events are free.

Deadline: Friday, July 15, 2016 - ABS ART AND DISABILITY INSTITUTE:

Art Beyond Sight (ABS), in partnership with the Dedalus Foundation, and with generous support from the Shelley and Donald Rubin Foundation, is proud to announce the launch of a major professional and academic initiative dedicated to increasing art world access for visual artists with disabilities and generating critical dialogue about contemporary art and disability.

The ABS Art and Disability Institute (ADI) is a seminar-based study program that will place emerging visual artists with disabilities working in any medium, as well as artists who make work about disability, alongside curators, established artists, theorists, and museum/gallery professionals in a year-long academic and practice-based program. The culminating year-end event of ADI will be a symposium and public exhibition of participants’ work.

Contributing to the expansion of efforts to amplify the voices of historically underrepresented groups, the Art and Disability Institute’s goal is to provide the opportunity for disabled fine artists to benefit from rigorous critical studies and studio practice and engage in professional development in order to enrich and advance their careers. In addition to providing opportunities for exhibition, professional network building, and critical reception for artists with disabilities, corollary ADI goals are to promote inclusion of artists with disabilities in the larger art world, to increase the potential for all disabled individuals to see themselves reflected in art, and to better reflect diversity to all NYC audiences.

ABS is looking for 15 emerging and early-career visual artists to participate in ADI’s pilot year beginning in October 2016. Ideal artist candidates are:

• Artists with disabilities, or artists making work about disability, working in any medium, in the first ten years of their career;
• Professional working artists, or students in a relevant graduate study program;
• Residents of the greater NYC area, able to travel independently to Manhattan and Brooklyn for program activities;
• Willing to collaborate and fully engage in building a meaningful experience both for themselves and for future participants.

The pilot group of artists will engage in critical and creative dialogue and participate in a dynamic and active interrogation of what it is to be a professional artist who has a disability. Together you will formulate and examine questions of access, identity, representation, professional development, and artistic rigor arising in the intersection of art and disability.

Beginning in October 2016, the selected ADI participants will engage in critical discussion, strengthen professional networks, and create new work with peers, mentors, and the public. As the inaugural class, this group of artists has the unique privilege of not only participating in but also collaborating on the development of the program. You will also have the opportunity to become mentors for the next group of ADI participants. The rigorous curriculum, based on research conducted in spring and summer 2016, includes:
15 in-person seminars: These will be held primarily at the Dedalus Foundation’s Industry City Brooklyn space, facilitated by ABS staff/consultants and guest lecturers from the contemporary art world. Discussions will center on subjects such as disability and art theory, questions of identity both adopted and projected, critique and studio practice, professional skills and networking, and mentoring from contemporary art professionals. The seminars will be the heart of the program and offer a critical platform for participants and their work. Three of the seminars will be public lectures held at Dedalus’s Manhattan location, designed to ignite the conversation about disability, difference, and art for a broader audience.
An online community: An online resource to augment in-person seminars will be built on a free platform open to participants and the public. It will contain content such as readings, video of lectures and active discussion threads, enabling the conversation to continue outside of the classroom.
Year-end symposium: Artist growth and collaboration will be presented to the public at a one-day symposium in Spring 2017, featuring short talks by all participating artists and keynote presentation(s) inspired by seminar themes or guest lecturers. Artist participants will play a key role in determining the theme and speakers at this symposium.
Year-end exhibition: The pilot will conclude with a Spring 2017 exhibition of participant artwork, conceived and curated by the artists together with the advisory committee. The exhibition, to be held at the Dedalus Foundation gallery space in Brooklyn, will be accompanied by a printed catalogue and topical essay by a writer selected by the students.

ABS wants to hear your voice. Help shape the vital and necessary dialogue on diversity in the visual arts while taking advantage of a forum for engagement with academic and visual arts professionals and peers. Don’t miss the chance to be a part of this groundbreaking study program, tuition free for pilot participants.

Nominate yourself or another potential candidate using the online form linked here.

For questions or assistance completing the nomination form, please contact Kashfia Huda, ABS Administrator, at or at (212) 334-8720.

EVENT 2: Thursday, April 23rd, 2015, 3:00-5:00
Speaker: Bethany Stevens, J.D., M.A.
Pushing Pleasure: Stripping Ableism & Embracing Cripsex
We need a politic of cripsex that demands sexual pleasure and recognition of sexual oppression of disabled people. Disabled people acting on our own sexual desires are often considered pathological and dangerous to ourselves and to society - as we may reproduce disabled offspring. Often framed as victims of abuse or abusers, disabled people experience erasure and demonization of our sexuality. Advocating for the centrality of pleasure and the right to decide the terms of our sexual life, debunks the myths that disabled people are sexually monstrous by making clear how our sexuality is fluid and experienced on a spectrum like those with typical bodies and minds. The orgasmic potential of disabled bodyminds helps all of us to expand notions of what sexual activities are and acknowledge the many ways pleasure can be experienced. In order to value disabled bodyminds, we must embrace our sexual agency and desirability, demanding significant effort and practice to untangle social narratives. In the current social climate of silence and shame, advocating for pleasure is a fundamentally political act against ableism. It’s time to push back.

A selection of artwork from the online entries will be chosen for a live exhibition at the United States Department of Education in Washington D.C.
