(Mis)Reading the Image: Professor Martin on accessibility and disability representation
“(Mis)Reading the Image: Selections by Darrin Martin” will be presented by Electronic Arts Intermix (EAI) on Mar. 30 at 2:00 pm (EST).
Martin will lead a screening followed by a discussion which will look at EAI’s collection through the lens of accessibility and disability representation. Beginning in 2010, Martin started to explore EAI’s collection with two goals in mind: to search for disability representation, and in pursuit of experimental video work that considers disability access at its inception. As an extension of this project, Martin has assembled a program of works by six artists whose practices span from early conceptual video to contemporary performance, each uniquely engaging the themes of perceptual difference, semiotic play, and embodiment.
RSVP required. Screening and discussion to follow at EAI, 264 Canal Street, #3W, New York City. A free, closed-captioned online streaming version of this event will be available in mid-April.
