Garage Museum of Contemporary Art hosts the final show of projects by participants of Arts Incubator creative lab curated by Elaine Cheung.
In early April, Garage and ZERO1 launched the Russian edition of Arts Incubator, a creative lab curated by artist Elaine Cheung. The month-long project invited participants to explore the subject of inclusion using contemporary artistic tools and strategies. Along with workshops and discussions, the program included meetings with the curators of the exhibition Co-Thinkers, disabled visitors, and the staff of Garage’s Department of Inclusive Programs.
The lab brought together a number of designers, engineers, experts in inclusion, medics, and artists. Four groups of participants focused on one aspect of inclusion each: raising awareness about inclusive practices in museums; facilitating cooperation within communities; discovering new leisure opportunities; and developing new experiences for people with and without disabilities. In addition to curating group projects, Elaine Cheung has been working on a prototype of a sensory room to be used in museums.
On Saturday, April 22, the participants will talk about their projects and share their vision of the future of inclusive programs for people with disabilities.
