Art, Gender, and Disability: Aesthetics of Access explores the methodological framework of “aesthetics of access,” where artists use the materials of access – audio descriptions, captions, tactile objects, sign language and transcripts – as subject matter for their work, moving away from image-first projects, while considering the access needs of their audience.
