TRES FRIDAS PROJECT
Re-imagining Art Through the Disability Lens
Inspired by her experience as a digital artist, and fueled by a desire to create disability positive imagery, Mariam Paré spearheads this thought-provoking series creating images surrounding the disability experience. Made in collaboration with photographer Tara Ahern and Reveca Torres.
A captivating collection of 16 recreations of iconic images in art, history and pop culture, featuring people with disabilities as the subjects. The goal of Tres Fridas Project is to explore different facets of disability, changing perceptions along the way. The exhibition provides an immersive learning experience, incorporating different opportunities to engage with the art and project themes while providing accommodations for thoughtful inclusion for those with and without disabilities.
This collection highlights Chicago area artists with disabilities.
