Virtual Tour of “For Each Other” Live from Gallery 400
Date / Time
November 18, 2022
3:00 pm - 4:00 pm
Join UIC Disability Cultural Center Director Margaret Fink and exhibiting artist Kennedy Healy for a virtual tour of For Each Other, a group exhibition highlighting the ways a group of Chicago-based artists and collectives consider care in their work and in the contexts they create for their work.
Kennedy Healy considers structures of care that constantly surround her but may be invisible to others. Many of her pieces incorporate medical bills, timesheets, and medical equipment, critiquing state systems of violence that are framed as systems of care. Rather than the American ideal of independence, Kennedy imagines a world built on interdependence.
Kennedy Healy (she/her) is a Fat, Queer, Crip Chicago-based writer and consultant. Her work focuses on disability, accessibility, care, sexuality, media representation and abolition. Most recently, she founded Crip Crap, a media company that makes media about disability, by and for disabled people. She is a Libra who loves plants, chicken wings, and feminist country music. Follow her work at Crip Crap Media or on Instagram @crip.crap.media.
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 email@example.com with any questions or requests.
