This event is in the past.

"Script/Rescript" features the artwork of ten artists who use historical and contemporary medicalizing scripts of their own bodies to colorfully rescript – or rewrite – visual language attributed to individual conditions of disability. An X-ray, a prosthesis, a cane, a crutch, a pill, a wheelchair tire, or a syringe are the foundation in which to build new creative layers of empowered self-described embodiment. The work in this exhibition conveys disabled identity via new mapping, through-lines and mark-making, where the artists reject pathological archives by injecting them with memories, lived experiences, and sensorial attributes.Artists:Featuring work by contemporary disabled artists:Panteha AbareshiJillian CrochetSugandha GuptaAna García JácomeBhavna MehtaDominic QuagliozziKatherine SherwoodAkiko SuraiSunaura TaylorChun-Shan (Sandie) YiGallery hours:Tuesday through Thursday, 12-4 p.m. and by appointment.Contact artgalleries@sdsu.edu or 619-594-5171 for appointments.Related events:Thursday, October 13 from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.University Art GalleryOpening Reception with ArtistsThursday, November 10 from 2:00 – 3:15 p.m.Donald P.
