About the Exhibit

The stories we share with each other are transformative, forming networks of kinship, care, and resistance. Throughout the pandemic, my disabled femme body has existed in a liminal state — receiving access and rest in radical new ways while experiencing profound isolation and grief. Removed from the social fabric of daily life and denied critical access to care, chronically ill, sick and disabled communities wove together expansive networks of interdependence and kinship through digital worlds built from the shelter of our beds. all of us, also explores the transformative capacity of crip storytelling, how sharing our despairs and joys became the narrative threads that hold our outrage and celebrate our collective survival.

Chelsey Campbell (they/she) is a queer crip artist, educator, and cultural worker. A nonbinary white settler of Scottish descent, Campbell resides as an uninvited guest in amiskwacîwâskahikan (Edmonton) on Treaty 6 territory. Exploring tender narratives of disability justice, feminized care labour, and crip kinship, their practice intertwines autoethnographic storytelling with community-oriented practices of access, care, and interdependence. Through a combination of printmaking, 3D modelling, installation, and photography, their work seeks to make space for the body in pain, celebrate disabled narratives as complex and whole, and build radical access for community through artistic practice.

Throughout the exhibition,the artist be available in the gallery to be in community on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays from 2:00–5:00 pm. All are welcome to share space.

For accessibility, a transcript of the work with alt-text as poetry captions will be available in the gallery. Guided Zoom and Tactile tours for visitors who would prefer to explore the work through touch are available by appointment.
