Hosted by Tangled Art + Disability


Tangled Art Gallery, 401 Richmond Street West, S-124, Toronto, ON, M5V 3A8, Canada

#CripRitual Is an exhibition of artworks presented by The Critical Design Lab, in collaboration with Tangled Art + Disability and the Doris McCarthy Gallery.

Disabled, crip, d/Deaf, Mad, and Sick people face a lot of barriers and stigma. One way that we deal with these barriers is through rituals. Rituals can be things that we do to create accessibility, mark important moments, or to be in community with others who have similar experiences. We chose some art to be part of a show called #CripRitual. The art is by disabled artists. The artwork is about rituals, things we do all the time, or with special purpose, to make life more accessible for ourselves and other people we care for.

The show will be at two art galleries in the city of Toronto: Tangled Art + Disability, Toronto and the Doris McCarthy Gallery, University of Toronto Scarborough. You can also find #CripRitual online at cripritual.com. We will try to make it as accessible as we can.


Tangled Art Gallery is in a barrier-free location. Audio description will be available for the exhibition as well as a guided tour. We will have ASL interpreters, attendant care, and live captioning during public engagements. Service animals are welcome. We request that you help us to make this a scent-free environment.

If you’d like to learn more about being scent-free, Aislinn Thomas has creating the resource Fragrance Free at the RMG and Tangled Art + Disability (PDF).
