Perspectives on Disability Art in the 20th and 21st Centuries.read more...
At DASH's symposium 'Awkward Bastards' in the Spring of 2015, artist and CEO of Shape Arts, Tony Heaton posed the question âIs the Disability Arts movement a forgotten movement?â
In response to this, DASH created a new 84 page, full-colour book that aims to show that Disability arts is alive, well and demands recognition and a place within art history.
Edited by curator Adrian Plant and artist Tanya Raabe-Webber, the book features essays by Darren Henley, Tony Heaton, Amanda Cachia, Craig Ashley, and interviews with fourteen artists including Sue Austin, Jon Adams, Sean Burn, Rachel Gadsden, Bobby Baker and Christine Sun Kim.
âThis book is a significant and fundamental point in the history of Disability art and culture. Recognising the history of Disabled artists, our position in the present and what it will be in the future. It will be the basis of our succession and place in the art world. The stories and artwork by these artists unites them and demonstrates the strong vibrant genre that is progressive and inspirational to an emerging Disability arts landscape.â - Tanya Raabe Webber.
