About #CripClay, hosted by We Aren't Invisible at Solway Gallery in Cincinnati Ohio March 2023
#CripClay is an exhibition of disabled artists by disabled artists. We are not here to be an inspiration, to showcase how much we’ve overcome or to be asked what’s wrong with us. We are here to be recognized and acknowledged. The world is currently in an ongoing pandemic in which disabled lives have been treated as disposable for the sake of comfort. Add to that, many of our spaces remain inaccessible, whether they are not suitable for mobility devices or service animals, openly hostile or disrespectful of disabled individuals, or simply lacking experience with making accommodations despite a desire to be welcoming. It’s time for that to change. Social media and the internet have leveled the playing field for disabled activism, the winds of change are blowing, the tide is changing. Disability does not mean an artist cannot be successful or a valuable member of a community; this is not a one size fits all abled-bodies only medium. Disability is the only minority group that anyone can join at any time. Let’s show what we can do.
