Crip* is a group exhibition featuring artists who address disability and intersectional thinking. Some of the artists identify as disabled, some do not, but each has a relationship to (at least one) non-normative identity. Often artists are expected to “perform” their identities for the art world through imaging themselves. On one hand this diversifies the art world; but on another hand this, in fact, pigeonholes artists with non-normative identities, strengthens the distinction between normative and non-normative, and reduces the rich and complex knowledge gained through lived experience to a more flattened and singular interpretation.

Curated by Liza Sylvestre, Curator of Academic Programs, Krannert Art Museum.
