MCA Common Use: Access Praxis —Justin Cooper

Date / Time

April 19, 2022

6:00 pm - 7:00 pm


MCA Advisory Partners Bodies of Work and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago invite you to Access Praxis, a collaborative and participatory event in The Commons. Combining theory and practice, “praxis” is ideas in action. Join disabled artist Justin Cooper, a former 3Arts/Bodies of Work Fellow, as he shares how narrative, accessibility, and disability aesthetics coalesce across his work in documentary film and photography. As part of Access Praxis, museumgoers will have the opportunity to meet Cooper and participate in a hands-on activity in and around the Commons related to their own experiences moving through the museum landscape.

Access information:

This in-person program is free and open to the public. ASL interpretation and verbal description will be offered on-site. For any other access needs please contact Carrie Sandahl at
