In Fragments is a collection of new media works by Lindsay Fisher that break down and critique perceptions of the deviant body. Through youTube videos and digital self portraiture, Lindsay utilizes the style of animated GIFs to investigate a visual culture of “spectacle” in the form of feminism, freakery and the everyday act of performing ourselves.

Opening reception:
Friday, October 24, 6 p.m.
Accessible, free, and open to the public

This exhibition is part of the University Arts Association of Canada on disability arts and culture; and the Common Pulse Festival and Symposium funded through SSHRC. This event is co-sponsored by Tangled Art + Disability.
