The Center for Disability Studies and Grey Art Gallery at NYU invite you to join
Emilie L. Gossiaux for a virtual artist talk in advance of her debut museum solo exhibition, Other-Worlding, at the Queens Museum in New York City. Gossiaux will be in conversation with Georgina Kleege, author of More than Meets the Eye: What Blindness Brings to Art. Gossiaux and Kleege will preview Gossiaux’s exhibit, discuss her artistic practice, and consider the ways a disabled artist’s experience can inform how museums provide access. Register here.
Emilie L. Gossiaux is a multidisciplinary artist whose works center disability pride through her investigations of the complex relationships between humans and animals in the Anthropocene, or the human-impacted world. Gossiaux’s work fosters imagination, liberation, and pleasure in opposition to the Anthropocene’s exploitative systems of capitalism and ableism. For her first museum solo exhibition, Gossiaux will create a large-scale sculptural installation that both expands upon her deep and sincere relationship with her guide dog, London, and celebrates the white cane as a symbol of freedom.
Georgina Kleege is Professor Emeritus of English at UC Berkeley. She now lives in New York City. Her recent books include: Sight Unseen, Blind Rage: Letters to Helen Keller, and More than Meets the Eye: What Blindness Brings to Art.
Co-sponsored by Proclaiming Disability Arts.
