Description

What does it mean to encounter oneself as an exhibit in a medical museum? Riva Lehrer, an award-winning painter, writer, and speaker whose work explores issues of identity and cultural depictions of disability, talks about her experience of staring, both as the subject of viewers’ curiosity, and as a portrait artist who considers how to be ethical as she depicts other non-normative bodies.
