Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists
The Incorrigibles: Perspectives on Disability Visual Arts in the 20th and 21st Centuries
'The Incorrigibles' is DASH's first publication. It is a book about artists being artists; a celebration of difference, it is about the will to survive as artists, it is about humanity, the fact that art unites us all as human beings, and that Disability Art is here and now!
