Ep 72: Disabled Curators
Today’s episode is about curation with artist Anna Berry. Anna is the first curator-in-residence in a programme created by DASH, a visual arts charity in the UK led by disabled people that connects disabled curators to major visual arts organizations. I spoke with Anna last year in the middle of her residency at the Midlands Art Center which is located in the city of Birmingham. For folks in the Midlands region of the UK, the exhibit Anna curated, titled, “Art and Social Change: The Disability Arts Movement,” is open now until March 22, 2020. In our conversation, Anna is going to demystify what curation is, she’ll also share her experiences of making her access needs known during her residency, and why we need more disabled curators in the arts.
