'Beauty in Exile' event Feb. 9
The lecture/discussion event "Beauty in Exile," featuring artist Riva Lehrer, will take place Tuesday, Feb. 9, at Gallery 400, 400 S. Peoria St., 2-4 p.m.
This talk is, in part, a memoir of sexual identity and, in part, an examination of the societal wall that excludes the disabled.
This series is free and open to the public. This program is part of "EXPOSURE: A Series of New Developments in Disability Arts & Culture.' Featuring the work of Lehrer, Arlene Malinowski and Barak ade Soleil, this new series offers insight into the practices of artists exploring the intersectionality between disability, art and culture.
