Güler Altunbas’ Human First? exhibition is disability-led storytelling, through the medium of digital art.
The inaugural show of Studio Dax, at The Dax Centre, Parkville opens on Thursday May 6, and examines the artistic experience of people who identify as D/deaf and disabled, chronically ill, neurodiverse, or who have lived experience of mental health issues.
Melbourne-based artist, Güler Altunbas, aims to bring together a diverse cross-section of other art-makers to demonstrate the richness in cultures within the disability community.
Human First? pairs video interviews with digital portraits to tell the stories of ten D/deaf and disabled artists.
The presentation of Human First? also demonstrates Altunbas’ own artistic process while each artist discusses their unique practice.
