Tangled Art Talks: Aislinn Thomas
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.
Aislinn Thomas (she / they) is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice includes video, performance, sculpture, installation, and text. She culls material from everyday experiences and relationships, creating work that ranges from poignant to absurd–at times straddling both. Many of Aislinn’s recent projects respond to access and disability. She works alongside and in the legacy of so many who out of necessity treat both as spaces for creative acts.
