Art of the Lived Experiment
April 10 – July 31, 2015
GRAM is one of three venues in Grand Rapids—along with Kendall College of Art and Design and the Urban Institute for Contemporary Arts (UICA)— to present Art of the Lived Experiment, a thematic group exhibition of contemporary art that addresses change, adjustment, and social perceptions in the lives of disabled people. The exhibition will explore technological advancements, social stigmatization, and the day-to-day experiences of people living with disabilities.
Art of the Lived Experiment is the centerpiece of the DisArt Festival, which includes a series of talks, performances, and presentations at various venues around Grand Rapids that aim to inform the public and inspire conversations about the human experience of disability as it relates to the production of art.
