  • Cripping Cyberspace Curator Acknowledgments
    • Authors: Amanda Cachia
      Abstract: Cripping Cyberspace: A Contemporary Virtual Art Exhibition would not have been possible without the incredible commitment and support of Jay T. Dolmage, Editor of the Canadian Journal of Disability Studies, and Geoffrey Shea and Libby Shea from the Common Pulse Intersecting Abilities Art Festival and Symposium. I thank them tremendously for inviting me to curate this project, through which my skills and ideas around curating have most certainly been challenged. I am also grateful to Jay for collating all the exhibition materials and formatting the special issue of the Canadian Journal of Disability Studies in order to showcase Cripping Cyberspace, and providing the artists with technical advice. Libby and Geoffrey have been efficient administrators of the artist and curator contracts, travel arrangements and finding the appropriate resources. It has been an honor to work with artists Katherine Araniello, Cassandra Hartblay, Sara Hendren and m.i.a. collective (Arseli Dokumaci, Antonia Hernández, Laurence Parent and Kim Sawchuk). Thank you for being willing guinea pigs in this wonderful experiment in cyberspace, and participating in the additional Skype artist interviews and audio description process. Finally, I am grateful to Alexandra Haagaard for providing the excellent written transcripts of the Skype artist interviews.

  • ‘Disabling’ the Museum: Curator as Infrastructural Activist
    • Authors: Amanda Cachia
      Abstract: This paper will explore how I attempt to ‘disable’ the museum through curating my third exhibition containing disability-related content, that I consider to be part of my work as a radical, infrastructural activist: Cripping Cyberspace: A Contemporary Virtual Art Exhibition (2013) hosted by and in conjunction with the Common Pulse Intersecting Abilities Art Festival and Symposium and the Canadian Journal of Disability Studies. The space for this exhibition offers a new experimental virtual platform hosted by an online journal. I argue that part of the decolonizing work of disability studies is to offer opportunities to both curators and artists where their work can be displayed within unconventional gallery settings (such as the virtual platform) in order to ‘crip’ art history and contemporary art practice.

  • Sick, Bitch, Crip Dance
    • Authors: Katherine Araniello
      Abstract: CLICK HERE TO EXPERIENCE THE SICK, BITCH, CRIP VIDEOSick Bitch Crip (SBC) is a guise and a persona that has a voice and an inflated personality. She demands to be visible, placing herself anywhere she can within social media, digital images and short film. SBC’s latest development is that she has now multiplied into three, Sick, Bitch and Crip. Araniello aims to create frameworks that challenge and alter preconceptions. This is done through subversive humour and presenting disability in fresh discourses. Araniello’s strategic insistence on using cyberspace as a critical and visible stage for showcasing her SBC persona and disability politics takes advantage of its pervasive hold and effect on mainstream society.

  • Do You Like This Installation?
    • Authors: Cassandra Hartblay
      Abstract: CLICK HERE TO VISIT THE INSTALLATION SITECalling herself an ethnographer of disability experience, Cassandra Hartblay has contributed Do You like this Installation?, an interactive art project that has both online and material interfaces. It is composed of three components: (1) a material installation in a gallery space, (2) an interactive online interface and (3) data analysis. The project grows out of 11 months of fieldwork regarding social inclusion and disability in the city of Petrozavodsk in northwestern Russia, particularly as manifested in a disabled person’s uneven access to the internet and voting.

  • Virtual Poster Series (ViP) #1: Traffic Lights
    • Authors: Montreal in/accessible Collective
      Abstract: CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE VIRTUAL POSTER SERIESThis first set of posters, which will launch in tandem with the Cripping Cyberspace exhibition, profiles work undertaken by the m.i.a. collective that addresses “architectural ableism.” This first of a series of virtual posters deals with the "spatial enunciations" of the urban environment in relationship to the barriers, simultaneously physical and virtual, which prohibit people with physical disabilities from participating in civic life, on and off line. Playing with the genre of the poster, m.i.a have created “Traffic Lights” where each of the 3 colours of the lights - Red, Yellow, Green- are used to present an inter-related triptych of m.i.a work. Each illuminated, animated square acts as a portal that allow internet browsers, lurkers, and researchers to access media content: Red takes you to a set of five video capsules titled Architectural Ableism; Yellow to Montreal*in/accessible and the Megafone website replete with geo-locational photographs taken by project participants; Green to the first in a video series by Laurence Parent called Cripping the Landscape.

  • Slope : Audio
    • Authors: Sara Hendren
      Abstract: CLICK HERE TO EXPERIENCE SLOPE AUDIOIn this three-minute sound collage, Hendren is engaging new possibilities for the “alt text” for an image. In its typical form, this is a prose description that usually provides alternate access to digital spaces online for non-sighted users. But Hendren is also attempting to push the sensory estrangement that is the heart of the project: an invitation to experience this ubiquitous material structure again, but without only ‘visioning’ it by the material design and its juxtaposition in images online.
