2020-2021 Theme: “Vulnerable Bodies: In the Wake of the Human”

This year-long theme confronts the complex relationships between the able-ist norms of visual cultures and abject, queer, disabled, erased, as well as traumatized bodies. Coinciding with the 30-year anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), we envision an interdisciplinary platform that can inform and dialogue with a variety of approaches from feminist, queer, crip, critical race, and disability theories, to performance, trauma, and memory studies that question how bodies are visualized, surveilled, imagined, exploited, or negated. Bodies bring forth the possibility of connecting worlds and networks often held apart and of understanding how neoliberal (racial and carceral) capitalism does not just regulate both ability and disability but also produces precarious and vulnerable bodies. With these terms, our lineup focuses on a wide variety of approaches to how art, objects, and bodies are both regulated by and resist against dominant systems of power.

Please join us for our exciting program of lectures, artist talks, and workshops!
