September 27–November 9 in the Main Space
Opening reception for members and guests: Friday September 27 from 7–9 pm
Over the last several years, Christophe Jivraj has made photographs with a group of physically disabled adults. In portraits of these people in their environments, Jivraj’s practice explores the ways that they are represented, and the surrounding taboos. His subjects sit without the most visible symbol of their disability, their wheelchairs, instead in their bedrooms: spaces that reflect their individuality, where the viewer can reexamine the identities and realities of disability. In photographs and video, these people are both vulnerable, and ready to speak.
