I’m looking at an interesting gallery commission that seeks a disabled artist to help look at creative ways of attracting a wider audience. The selection criteria include that the artist define themselves as a disabled person.
I have been thinking a lot about the transition from ‘able-d’ to ‘disable-d’. For many disabled artists there hasn’t been a transition – there has only been ‘disabled’. I have only been me, so maybe should only speak about the impact of disability on me and my work and daily perception of the world.
