Exhibition, May 23 – June 14, 2019
The exhibition reveals (dis)abled artists working within the digital realm as a way to create artworks beyond materiality. Using time-based works that exist only within the digital, each artist explores ideas of care, dependency, healing, pain, and crip time in order to digitally embody the (dis)abled body experience. By transforming the private sphere of (dis)ability into the digital sphere, which can be both private and public, each artist takes agency in revealing an invisible experience to the world via the Internet.
Artists: Carolyn Lazard, Park McArthur, Constantina Zavitsanos, Melissa Tamporello, Sheree Rose, Bob Flanagan, and Mary Grace Bernard. While the exhibition was temporarily presented at Art Gym in the physical sense, it continues to be shown online at www.digitalembodiment.tumblr.com.
