@ Curb Appeal Gallery

Email for address

Opening Friday, March 3rd, from 6PM - 8PM

On view through Saturday, April 22nd

Curb Appeal Gallery is pleased to announce our inaugural exhibition and the Chicago debut of “Molly Joyce’s Perspective”. Begun in 2019, “Perspective” is a sound and video work that captures perspectives of the disability experience. Created through interviewing over 40 participants around topics that encompass elements of disability—including care, interdependence, weakness, and cure—Joyce has composed and performed a work that invites audiences to consider the kaleidoscopic and nuanced experiences that inform what it means to be disabled. Created with disability aesthetics and accommodations in mind, “Perspective” features open-captioned videos, lending a sense of visual primacy to the stories of the disabled participants and their valuable perspectives. In addition to screening “Perspective”, Curb Appeal is delighted to host a brief conversation between Joyce and one of the project interviewees, Chicago artist Andy Slater (from 7:00-7:30pm).

Accessibility: Curb Appeal is wheelchair accessible. In addition to open captioning on the video work, we will provide ASL interpretation and CART-captioning for remarks and a brief conversation between Molly Joyce and Andy Slater. Masks are required for entry and will be provided if needed. Please note, Curb Appeal is an apartment gallery and doubles as a home to our gallery dog. Accommodations for “Molly Joyce: Perspective” were funded through the generous support of Bodies of Work, a consortium of disability art and culture in Chicago
