(In)Accessible City curated by Jeff Nachtigall
September 17-October 22, 2010
From September 17th to October 22nd, 2010, AKA gallery presents the exhibition InAccessible City, an up-close and interactive look at issues around mobility, accessibility and what life in a wheelchair is really like. The exhibition will feature a monumental painting installed on the billboard spanning the top floor of the building’s exterior. Artists Paul Major and Kelly Roszell use a mobile painting device connected to their wheelchairs to make the work. The piece will be the largest painting ever exhibited in a Saskatchewan gallery.
For the duration of the exhibition and through two special workshops being held during Culture Days, AKA’s main gallery space will become a production centre and workspace. Artist and curator Jeff Nachtigall, will facilitate these hands-on workshops where people with limited mobility and able-bodied persons alike will be able to use adaptive mark making equipment with the results being displayed on the gallery walls.
