Untitled Art + Disability Culture project by Reveca Torres

Artist Reveca Torres imagines how her disabled ancestors Frida Kahlo, Vincent Van Gogh, and Henri Matisse lived and created. Through letters and artifacts, she finds that they’ve created a path for contemporary disabled artists yet their struggles parallel her own. As Reveca connects with present day artists with disabilities, together they imagine a society in which the barriers they face no longer exist and disability art and culture is celebrated in the art canon.

For the Left Hand

At age 10, aspiring pianist Norman Malone is paralyzed on his right side after being attacked by his father. Over the next several decades he masters the left-hand repertoire in secret, before a chance discovery of his talent leads him towards making his concert debut. Aged 78, he will perform the greatest work in the canon: Ravel’s Piano Concerto for the Left Hand.

Through brief portraits of three women—a blind theater goer, a tactile tour guide, and an audio describer—Hearing Images illustrates how the performing arts can be made verbal and tactile for those in an audience who cannot see. This was my first film.
