31st Rendezvous with Madness Festival presented by Workman Arts

Indebted to the words and thinking of disability justice educator Mia Mingus, wherever you are is where i want to be offers access intimacy as the un-structuring logic for our collective queer and trans crip futures. Refusing the loudly eugenicist mapping of isolation and disposability upon our disabled queer-trans-crip bodyminds, the multi-disciplinary practices platformed here speak with a loved urgency to the ways in which embodied experiences of access intimacy have the capacity to reconfigure time, space, and relation. Spanning installation to textile to video, the work of these artists proposes the act, experience, and feeling of crip kinship as a means and model of radical future-making.

The wherever you are is where i want to be exhibition will be presented between Thursday October 5 – Tuesday October 31 in Workman Arts’ Offsite Gallery, located at Artscape Youngplace, 180 Shaw Street, Unit 302, Toronto.

Gallery hours Tuesday to Saturday: 1 – 6 PM.
The exhibition will be staffed by active listeners who will be available to debrief the artworks, offer resources or just talk about your day.

All exhibitions and associated programs are free and open to the public.
