It's time to Re·Focus
When the pandemic reached undeniable levels and the lockdowns began, questions of access – consistently championed by generations of disability advocates – finally entered mainstream discourse. Now one year and, for many of us, a whole lot of Zoom fatigue later, we’d like to ask: who is still missing from our daily consideration? And why?
In this spirit, we invite you to Re·Focus, our upcoming online photo exhibit centering the self-expression and stories of our disability community. A beautiful retrospective spanning ten years of portrait photography with Upstream Arts participants, Re·Focus will feature some of our favorite diptychs with accompanying stories told through many forms of creative expression. Join us as we playfully confront ableist social isolation with the unapologetically joyful art of the selfie.
