#CripRitual Remote Access Dance Party

Hosted by Tangled Art + Disability

Accessible online dance party with artist presentations & performances, to celebrate recent exhibition #CripRitual

(This is the rescheduled date for the #CripRitual Remote Access Party, originally scheduled for April 1)

Celebrating the recent exhibition #CripRitual, DJ Who Girl (Kevin Gotkin) will be on the virtual mic, DJ Crip Time (Stefana Fratila) will provide the tunes, and artists Margeaux Feldman, Khairani Barokka, Sky Cubacub, and moira williams will offer presentations and performances, for an afternoon and early evening of accessible online pleasure activism! All welcome!

The Remote Access Dance Party is an ongoing crip nightlife project by Critical Design Lab that considers parties as designed spaces, with opportunities for playful and participatory ways of producing access, while having fun and building community.

Registration is not required -- please see the party Participation Guide to learn more about the program, how you can participate, and to access the Zoom link.

(If you do register, we'll send you a link to this guide!)

ABOUT THE EXHIBITION The Remote Access Dance Party is presented as part of the programming for #CripRitual, multi-site and online exhibition featuring works by more than 20 artists curated by the Critical Design Lab, co-presented by the Doris McCarthy Gallery and Tangled Art + Disability from January 21 - April 1, 2022.

The exhibition features artworks that illustrate and create examples of crip rituals — practices that disabled, crip, d/Deaf, Mad, and Sick people undertake alone and in groups to care for each other, build political and social power, survive in the face of discrimination and oppression, and manage the ways that others see us. This exhibition recognizes crip rituals as processes and events for surviving ableism and claiming power that may be secular, spiritual, political, or in-between.

The Doris McCarthy Gallery provides an open space for the critical and civil exchange of ideas. By registering for this program you agree to help create an atmosphere of mutual inclusion and respect for all persons. This includes speaking, acting, and behaving in a way that is absent of violence, harassment, racism, intimidation, bullying or discrimination of any kind regardless of, and not limited to gender, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, culture, age and ability.

The Doris McCarthy Gallery at times records programs and events for the purposes of education, archive, and promotion. The Doris McCarthy Gallery will not use these recordings for commercial purposes. Participants will be notified at the beginning of a program or event when recordings will be taken. Please disable your video and/or microphone if you do not wish to be recorded.
