RE/FORMATIONS: Disability, Women, and Sculpture, Exhibition Catalogue

Co-curators: Jessica Cooley and Ann M. Fox, Ph.D.

Online Exhibition Catalogue

The exhibition catalogue was realized as a “web-ication,” so that it would be physically and financially accessible to the audience. It was also meant to act as  a “green-alternative” to producing thousands of paper catalogues.

Artists: Rebecca Horn, Nancy Fried, Harriet Sanderson, Judith Scott, and Laura Splan

RE/FORMATIONS: Disability, Women, and Sculpture is the first exhibition to address the intersection between disability identity and female identity. On view from January 16 – February 27, 2009, five female artists, four of whom are disabled, will exhibit sculpture that examines disability not as mental or physical insufficiency limited to a small minority, but as a widespread and diffuse cultural identity, like race or sexual orientation. This is not art as therapy or rehabilitation. It is art emerging from within disability culture that is at once activist and aesthetically innovative.
