There is so much that able-bodied people could learn from the wisdom that often comes with disability. But space needs to be made. Hands need to reach out. People need to be lifted up
–Alice Wong, Disability Visibility: First-Person Stories from the Twenty-first Century
Antelope Valley College Art Gallery is pleased to present Opulent Mobility, which gives voice to artists re-imagining disability as opulent and powerful. This group exhibition brings together fifteen local, national, and international contemporary artists, working in a range of visual media, each of whom produce works around their narrative and experiences based on the systemic structures and representations surrounding the labels of disability. Their visual interpretations are a powerful reminder that accommodation, understanding, and appreciation is important for social justice, but there is also a unique wisdom from those with disabilities that should be heard, empowered, and lifted up.
