Throughout galleries and museums, disabled, D/deaf and neurodiverse experiences have been concealed. This new exhibition at Bristol Museum & Art Gallery exposes these hidden stories and challenges preconceptions.
Featuring artists such as Henri Matisse and local stories like performer Patrick Cotter O’Brien, it highlights how disability can be a creative force and questions why the experiences of disabled people are socially stigmatised.
Concealed/Reveal has been curated by Curatorial Fellow, Jo Barlow, and Curatorial Fellowship Assistant Freya Purcell. It has been produced with Curating for Change, who, working with over 20 museums, have provided opportunities for D/deaf, disabled and neurodivergent people seeking a curatorial career.
