Other-Worlding: Artist Talk by Emilie L. Gossiaux, in Conversation with Georgina Kleege (Zoom)

September 22 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm

Free

The Center for Disability Studies and Grey Art Gallery at NYU invite you to join Emilie L. Gossiaux for a virtual artist talk in advance of her debut museum solo exhibition, “Other-Worlding”, at the Queens Museum in New York City. Gossiaux will be in conversation with Georgina Kleege, author of “More than Meets the Eye: What Blindness Brings to Art”. Gossiaux and Kleege will preview Gossiaux’s exhibit, discuss her artistic practice, and consider the ways a disabled artist’s experience can inform how museums provide access.

Emilie L. Gossiaux is a multidisciplinary artist whose works center disability pride through her investigations of the complex relationships between humans and animals in the Anthropocene, or the human-impacted world. Gossiaux’s work fosters imagination, liberation, and pleasure in opposition to the Anthropocene’s exploitative systems of capitalism and ableism. For her first museum solo exhibition, Gossiaux will create a large-scale sculptural installation that both expands upon her deep and sincere relationship with her guide dog, London, and celebrates the white cane as a symbol of freedom.

Georgina Kleege is Professor Emeritus of English at UC Berkeley. She now lives in New York City. Her recent books include: Sight UnseenBlind Rage: Letters to Helen Keller, and More than Meets the Eye: What Blindness Brings to Art.

Co-sponsored by Proclaiming Disability Arts.

Program Image Description
Emilie L. Gossiaux's artwork titled "Dancing Again" is captured in this image. Three tan-colored hand-drawn dogs are playfully dancing around a maypole. Each dog holds a leash in its mouth, connected to the maypole, with colors differentiating them -- light purple for the left dog, red for the middle one, and yellow for the dog on the right. The maypole, in white with a blue top, stands amidst red, pink, and yellow flowers. A light blue crescent moon graces the top left corner, while a gentle, light yellow sun adorns the top right corner of the piece.
