CRIPTYCH showcases a year of intensive project development from members of the DATA program, a collaboration between Arts AccessAbility Network Manitoba and Video Pool Media Arts. This exhibition confronts outdated modes of therapy, unearths skeletons in the mental health care system, explores inner worlds of digitally-mediated self-examination and negotiates boundaries between vulnerable states of dependence, dis/ability and agency. The artists in CRIPTYCH take extraordinary lengths to share their experiences through these profoundly personal artworks.
The Diversity through Access to Technology + Art program (DATA) provides mentorship, education and career development opportunities to artists with disabilities who are interested in incorporating technology into their arts practice.
