Cultivating spaces for extraordinary artists

The Incorrigibles: Perspectives on Disability Visual Arts in the 20th and 21st Centuries

This book is not just about Disablity arts and culture, it is a book about artists being artists, it is about a celebration of difference, it is about the will to survive as artists, it is about humanity, it is about the fact that art unites us all as human beings and that Disability Art is here and now!

We hope that The Incorrigibles ​​​​​​​will provide a valuable contribution at this significant and fundamental point in the history of Disability Art and culture. Recognising and understanding the history of Disabled artists in the past and their position in the present will be the basis of generating new and more enlightened practices in the future.

We are indebted to all the artists who responded with such openness, honesty and generosity of spirit.

More about the book

“I was honoured and delighted to be included in The Incorrigibles landmark publication: the Disability Arts Movement was and still is a hugely influential arts movement which is about both the creative avant-garde and social change - Dash’s The Incorrigibles publication captured that balance superbly, a balance my work is all about.’ David Hevey.

'It was great to be included in the incorrigibles book - it looks FAB - there are very few spaces available to showcase the excellence of artists who face barriers and this is a high quality example of what can and needs to be done' Jon Adams​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Praise for The Incorrigibles:

Colin Hambrook, Disability Arts Online said; "The Incorrigibles is both a testament to the resilience of artists making work in the face of disabling obstacles and the commitment of artists dedicated to making work about the experience of disability."

Christine Sun Kim said: "There aren't many organisations like DASH out there that fully fund artists with disabilities and pave the road for us to make art with ease, without worrying about the cost of accommodations and such. As a Deaf artist, I often feel hesitant about asking certain things to make my communication less difficult, but DASH has made the experience smooth and I find that very generous." ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
