During the Association of Performing Arts Presenters in New York, Heidi Latsky presented this performative installation called "#OnDisplay." The performance work notes that "reverting the gaze is integral to disability culture." In the installation, the performers had the power to control what they revealed or concealed, "giving them the control over a personal journey that cannot help but be affected by an audience." The audience was invited to share the performance on social media, but at a distance, and with respect to the performers--reshaping how we consider the audience's respect for artists & performers. Lisa Dent, our Director of Resources & Award Programs, viewed the installation and took this picture. #APAP

  • meadartmuseumIt's amazing to see the arts shining a light on disability culture, and doing so in a responsible way.
