Student Spotlight: Chapter 2 of Jessica Cooley’s “Indisposable”

We are pleased to announce the next online chapter of Indisposable: Structures of Support After the ADA, co-curated by Jessica Cooley (UW-Madison, Art History, Ph.D. Candidate) and Ann M. FoxA year-long online exhibition created for the Ford Foundation Gallery, chapter 2 will premiere this Wednesday, November 18, from 1–2 pm EST.

Please join us for a joyful afternoon of #QuarantineLooks: Embracing the Fabulously Mundane with UW-Madison’s own Sami Schalk (Associate Professor in the Department of Gender and Women’s Studies) and Jina B. Kim, with live illustration by MK Czerwiec.

How does disability create knowledge essential to surviving a global pandemic? One answer: joy. Schalk’s #QuarantineLooks embraces the lushness of her “fat Black femme” body; challenges what depression looks like; and interrogates what it means to look well or unwell.

Wear what makes you feel fabulous and join us for a break from the mundane. Come ready to answer the question: how are you bringing pleasure into your world in this moment? You can learn more and register for the event here:
