Tangled Art Talks: Valentin Brown
Hosted by Tangled Art + Disability, Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO)
Spurred by calls for disability justice and the desire for a more equitable and intersectional future, the disability arts movement is pushing forward with renewed political intention to disrupt conventional understandings of the arts.
Tangled Art + Disability and the AGO have formed a new partnership to showcase the possibilities of a world that honours access, disability and difference. We are excited to present videos by six artists from Tangled’s community that showcase their artistic practices in response to artwork in the AGO Collection.
Relax with Sample 01 Valentin Brown introduces you to “Sample 01,” an Unknown Specimen found adrift in the “Body Farm.” In this video footage, Valentin demonstrates some ways of practicing closed captioning and audio description. When it is safe to do so, Valentin invites you to touch an Unknown Specimen just like this one.
