More About the Event
Lee will give his insights into the boundary breaking aspects of accessible curatorial practices, pushing beyond compliance-based understandings of access towards liberatory approaches. Exploring the notion of disability arts as the ‘last avant-garde’ movement, as coined by Turner Prize-nominated artist Yinka Shonibare, Lee advocates for a pivotal shift in our understanding of the relationship between art and disability.
