Art Break: Guidelines

July 31, 2019 @ 12:00 pm MDT


Please join Walter Phillips Gallery for a tour of the exhibition, Guidelines by Carmen Papalia with Heather Kai Smith. Since 2015, Vancouver based-artist Carmen Papalia’s practice has been grounded in the conceptual framework he terms Open Access. This set of five tenets draw on Papalia’s experience as a non-visual learner, a term he chooses to identify with over the medicalizing terminology of blind or visually impaired. Emphasizing what he understands as an institution’s social accessibility, the framework of Open Access advocates for the artist’s understanding of “accessibility as social practice” – a temporary experience that requires a relational approach to mutual care.
