Carmen Papalia is a non-visual social practice artist with chronic and episodic pain. He uses organizing strategies and improvisation to address his access to public spaces, art institutions and visual culture. His work, which takes forms ranging from collaborative performance to public intervention, is a response to the harms of the Medical Model of Disability. Papalia has exhibited and performed internationally at venues such as the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, the Whitney Museum of American Art, Tate Liverpool, and the Banff Centre for Arts & Creativity.

These events are made possible with support from the Andrew W. Mellon foundation and with support from the College of Fine and Applied Arts.
