Access Gallery is excited to present two new exhibitions on display during Denver’s Month of Photography: Access Denied featuring participants from Access Gallery’s Photography Residency; and Being Grayson featuring new works by photographer Julia Vandenoever.
Access Denied is an exploration of street photography through the lens of disability activism. This show is a culmination of Access Gallery's photography residency program taught by teaching artists Ron Davis and Andre Rodriguez. Artists were supplied with cameras, mentorship, and instruction to document their experiences on the streets of Denver.
“The human experience is denied if access is not given to every form. We often think of physical barriers and isolation when it comes to people with disabilities but also consider the other areas that are denied to this community: personal expression, emotional space, individuality, talent, experimentation, and meaningful relationships. Access Gallery’s photography residency gave room for exploration, discovery, curiosity, and imagination to tell a story through the disabled lens.
Participating Artists: Annalyse, Andre Rodriguez, Corey, Daniel James, Erik Hoy, Ron Davis
