Call for Art by Santa Monica Disabilities Commission

Posted in Call for entry, Disability Art, and Exhibit

The Santa Monica Disabilities Commission is currently seeking 2-dimensional art work (drawing, painting and printed work) created by people who have mental illness for a group exhibit during Mental Health Awareness Month (May). The art will be on display at the Main Santa Monica Public Library for 2 weeks during the month of May, and will accompany books and information that would help bring awareness and educate the public about mental health.

Haptic Encounters with Georgina Kleege

Posted in Exhibit, and Museums

One of the many welcome features of the Jewish Folktales Retold exhibition at the Contemporary Jewish Museum in San Francisco are the experimental access and interpretive materials created in collaboration with writer and professor Georgina Kleege.

On the left a tall white-haired woman stands dressed in black and holding a white cane, to her right a sculpture made of strips of paper and cardboard of a fox like creature, leaning back on its hind legs and one front leg resting behind its body, appearing to laugh, and towering over the woman.
Georgina Kleege and Blame/Thirst, a sculpture inspired by the Golem folk tale by Elisabeth Higgins O’Connor, 2017. Lumber, styrofoam, paint, bed sheets, domestic textiles, paper, 8 x 6 x 7 feet.

Georgina is a leading scholar working at the intersection between blindness and visual art.  She is also the blind daughter of two visual artists. A professor of English and Disability Studies at UC Berkeley, Georgina has expanded the field of audio description through her practice.

Happening today: You are Enough

An exhibition of visual art that pushes against the stigma associated with Crazy. Through this work, artists leverage self-love, healing and join through collective voice towards a movement that focuses on self-knowledge and acknowledgment rather than diagnosis. Featured artists include The Lady Miss Vagina Jenkins, Tricia Jameson-Tutwiler, and Sophie Spinelle.

The opening reception will be at 1pm today, June 3, 2017 at SOMAarts Cultural Center 934 Brannan Street, San Francisco, CA.

Gallery hours are June 3 : 1pm-4pm and June 4 : 11am-3pm.
