The SDSU School of Art and Design presents the exhibition, Script/Rescript featuring the artwork of ten artists who use historical and contemporary medicalizing scripts of their own bodies to colorfully rescript – or rewrite – visual language attributed to individual conditions of disability. The artwork conveys disabled identity via new mapping, through-lines, and mark-making, where the artists reject pathological archives by injecting their medical histories with memories, lived experiences, and sensorial attributes.

On view October 13 – December 8, 2022
SDSU University Art Gallery. Free and open to the public.
Gallery Hours: Tuesday – Thursday from 12:00 – 4:00 p.m. and by appointment
