UIC Disability Cultural Center DCC Tour of Crip* (Live from Gallery 400), Feb. 18, 3 p.m. RSVP to join virtually.
Join the UIC Disability Cultural Center for a virtual tour of Crip*, an exhibition on view at Gallery 400 through March 12.
CART (live captions) and ASL will be available on Zoom. We’ll have a camera connecting the Zoom and the gallery to capture the objects and the tour. Descriptions will be integrated into the presentation. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 312-355-7050 with any questions or requests.
Crip* is curated by Liza Sylvestre, and brings together “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.” The works on display and the exhibition’s efforts to bring them into conversation with one another are about exploring nuances and complexities of lived experience, medium, and relationships to the normative. Come get to know a bit more about specific pieces in the show–what they ask us to think through, and through what means.
Our tour will be virtual over Zoom, but Gallery 400 is open to the public.
- UIC-only hours: Tuesday and Wednesday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m.
- Public hours: Thursday and Friday, 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Saturday, noon-5 p.m.
- To share space in the Gallery, visitors must show proof of vaccination & photo ID, wear a mask, and social distance.

Image Description: A red DCC logo with bold black text, arranged around a photo of Shannon Finnegan’s piece Do you want us here or not? The piece is a blue wooden bench in a gallery with text painted on it. The back of the bench reads, “This exhibition has asked me to stand for too long.” The seat reads, “Sit if you agree.”
