In Conversation: Disability and Power with Dessa Cosma

When: Sun., Jan. 26, 3-4 p.m.

Dessa Cosma is a social justice activist and the founding director of Detroit Disability Power, which works to bridge the gap between the disability community and social justice movements. For Cosma, disability is a key part of her identity and of critical importance socially and politically—just like race, gender, sexual orientation, and religion. In this informal gallery talk, she will respond to the works of Japanese artist Mari Katayama and reflect upon her experiences and political expression as a disability activist. Katayama uses her disabled body as the subject in her provocative series of works combining photography, sculpture, and textiles.
