Disability justice must be rooted in the dismantling of white supremacy, anti-blackness and colonialism. Any less cannot be considered true justice. Tangled Art + Disability has donated funds and is sharing resources for our community.

Tangled Art + Disability Response to COVID-19

In light of recent local and global developments with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic, Tangled regrets to announce that we will be suspending gallery hours until further notice.

We do so with the intent to help mitigate the spread of the virus during this critical window of time. Our concern extends not only to our gallery visitors, but artists, curators, as well as Tangled team members.

Crip Times Podcast Series LogoCrip Times: A Podcast Series

Disabled people have long been experts at staying at home, and getting creative with new ways to stay in community with one another. At the beginning of the COVID-19 lockdown, many of us were wondering how we could maintain the sense of intimacy and connection that we get from gathering in crip arts spaces. Out of this desire, Crip Times was born: a new interview podcast series produced and hosted by Yousef Kadoura, Kayla Besse, and Kristina McMullin. Crip Times is a project of Bodies in Translation and Tangled Art + Disability and hosted on Drew Gurza’s Wheels on the Ground podcast network.

UPCOMING EXHIBIT

THAUMATURGY

Through the art and science of ‘wonder-working’, Thaumaturgy generates an immersive and participatory call to action to fight for the future of our planet’s well being. Animated through the respective artforms of 4 Indigenous Disabled artists, the 4 Elements of Earth, Wind, Fire, and Water meet at a juncture to story ceremony and sacred space for feeling and healing. Tobacco, Sage, Cedar and Sweetgrass work to resist the formalities of a gallery, giving way to living tableaus that tie together the 4 elemental installations.

Tangled is proud to announce that the winner of the 2020 Won Lee Fellowship, recognizing hard-working artists from the Deaf, Mad, and Disability-identified communities, is Michel Dumont.

It’s a great honor to receive this award at such a competitive level even more taking in count how many other amazing artists were also considered.
