Salamander by the Olimpias Disability Culture Collective
Swimmers Sunny Taylor and Petra Kuppers, performance action in Berkeley, California, 2013.
The Lane Hall Exhibit Space currently hosts Salamander, photographs and text created by The Olimpias artist collective, a group of disability culture activists and their allies, led by artistic director Petra Kuppers, Professor of English, Theater and Dance, Art and Women’s Studies. The artists use underwater photography, dry performance workshops, creative writing and video to find their disabled beauty emerging from the deep, the wild aesthetic of water. This community arts exhibit will change and grow throughout the term, with students and community members responding to the images and narratives.
The exhibit opening is Monday, Sept. 15, from 4:00-6:00pm.
Salamander runs through December 5, 2014.
