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.
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.
Park McArthur writes that she has passes to see her exhibit at San Francisco’s Museum of Modern Art. Just drop DisArts a line.
