Le Crédac

Assemblée nº1

As part of its research and experimentation residency at Crédac for the year 2023-24, Ostensible is organizing a cycle of participatory Assemblées around the issues of gender diversity and anti-violence in contemporary art.

There will be no live translation from French to English (for any of the Assemblies).

Considering the challenges of representing disability in both the creation of works of art and in questions of welcoming the public, Ostensible proposes an approach that combines political and aesthetic approaches.

Interested parties (first and foremost those principally concerned, but also allies) are invited to come together in Assemblées (Assemblies), to share their experiences of validism within the contemporary art world.
Opening up a space for discussion and reflection on this oppression of people with disabilities, the first Assemblée aims to gather observations, criticisms and ambitions towards cultural institutions, mainly from art workers, and will determine the themes addressed during subsequent meetings.

Promoting a participatory approach that emphasizes listening to those involved, the project participates, over the course of five Assemblées, in building a collective discourse around the relationship that disabled and minoritized people have with art.
The collaborative work will be reflected in a dedicated publication, which will be the third issue of the En résidence collection, an edition devoted to Crédac’s residency projects, edited by the Kiösk graphic design studio (to be published in summer 2024).

Participation is free, but places are limited.
Registration required: registration link coming soon.
Video transmission, LSF (French Sign Language) interpreting, subtitling, voice-reading… available on request.

There will be no live translation from French to English (for any of the Assemblies).

    Ostensible was founded by Lucie Camous (curator, artist, researcher) and No Anger (researcher, artist, author), both of whom are directly concerned with disability. Ostensible is a research-creation structure active in the fields of disability, crip studies and contemporary art. With an approach that combines curating and research, it promotes a new approach to disability that goes beyond the medical prism.
