Disassemble the Arts: Artist and Curator Talks

As a part of Disassemble the Arts, the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria’s arts and accessibility program, we will be offering a series of artist and curator talks via Zoom. These talks are free, however, registration is required.

Amanda Cachia, Thursday, Oct 29, 1:30pm-2:30pm 

In this talk, independent curator Amanda Cachia will discuss her curatorial practice which centers around care and accessibility in exhibitions and museums from a disability perspective. Recent exhibitions to be discussed include Automatisme Ambulatoire (2019), Sweet Gongs Vibrating (2016), and Flesh of the World (2015). Cachia will also explore what “creative access” might now mean in the museum in the age of COVID-19 and post-coronavirus, and how museums might be more intentional in meaningful intersectional approaches towards access in response to the civil unrest of 2020.

Amanda Cachia received her PhD in Art History, Theory & Criticism at the University of California San Diego in Spring 2017, and is an independent curator and critic from Sydney, Australia. Her research focuses on modern and contemporary art; curatorial studies and activism; exhibition design and access; decolonizing the museum; and the politics of disability in visual culture. Cachia has curated approximately 40 exhibitions, many of which contain social justice themes and content. She is an art history lecturer for Otis College of Art and Design, California Institute of the Arts, and California State University Long Beach. She is currently preparing her manuscript regarding the work of contemporary disabled artists, solicited by Duke University Press, in addition to editing a volume of essays with Routledge entitled Curating Access: Contemporary Art and Creative Accommodation.
