From the Brochure: Humans Being: Disability in Contemporary Art is a ground-breaking exhibition that will be a cornerstone of Bodies of Work: The Chicago Festival of Disability Arts and Culture, the city's first-ever multi-venue festival showcasing work by professional artists with disabilities.

The show aims to be a complex and serious conversation about how disability is both understood and misunderstood by the culture at large. It will include paintings, sculpture, photography, installation and samples of graphic novels by more than 20 artists-both disabled and non-disabled-and will explore issues of illness, impairment, discrimination, alienation, sexuality, community, identity and the political aspects of disability.
