First Friday @ UAC
Don't miss two of exhibits that are apart of THE EVERYDAY project. THE EVERYDAY is a multi-venue, multi-discipline, cross-disability project headed by an international steering committee with the curatorial goal of highlighting universal experiences, told from the disability perspective, presented in an audacious way.
Solo shows by King Godwin and Theresa Devine.
King uses color, brushstrokes, and numbers to create colorful compositions that embody everyday occurrences and events. “King sees what is true to him. King speaks his feeling through his paintings. King feels all of what is important for life, love and expresses them through his paintings. He believes in his works, and all of them are purely precious to him. King sees colors and numbers with feelings. They dance on his canvas, and those are his friends. 4500 is the happiest number, and 7 is sad, yet 77 is a good day! When he paints, he smiles. He enjoys feelings are freely cast in his canvases. King thinks being autistic is pretty lucky, because he can see beautiful trees and talk to them. King enjoys his life and he knows exactly what he likes. He swims like a fish and plays Taiko drums like he calls heaven.”
Theresa has previously showcased her work with VAE before. She will be sharing a wider range of the game works she showed during the first Ultralight exhibition. Theresa’s analog game use different selections of dice and rules that put the player into a new reality. Usually, one that helps the player experience their everyday life through the lens of someone living with disabilities. Theresa Devine is an Assistant Professor in the New College of Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences at Arizona State University. “She is interested in discovering how art and play can be understood in order to be activated for social change. She believes that through a greater understanding of art and play, a road to creating a more just, tolerant, and inclusive world can be exposed and that this path can be opened up for others to make discoveries of their own.”
