Bodies of Work, University of Illinois at Chicago


Bodies of Work is a network of artists and organizations whose art illuminates the disability experience.

From the local to the international, our “bodies of work” explore innovative forms of artistic expression, derived from unique bodies and minds, that explore the disability experience, advance the rights of disabled people, and widen society's understanding of what it means to be human.

"Disability is not a 'brave struggle' or 'courage in the face of adversity'...disability is an art. It is an ingenious way to live." Neil Marcus, Poet
