“‘Disabling’ the Museum: Curator as Infrastructural Activist,” Ramp Up: Disability. Discussion. Debate. Australian Broadcasting Corporation (ABC) September 2013
So why a turn to disability-related content in my practice? First and foremost, I identify as disabled. I was born with a rare form of dwarfism named brachyolmia. In my 15 years as a curator working in Australia, the UK, Canada and now the USA, I noticed that conventional art history, along with other disciplines in the humanities, has not accounted for developmentally and physically disabled subjects and their accompanying atypical bodies through the art museum and their curated exhibitions, through commercial art galleries and biennials, and the entire exhibition complex structure.
