Janice Essick and HML at Mill City Museum


Interact is pleased to announce that Janice Essick and HML will present work in The Art of Disability Justice Now, an exhibition organized by local disabled artists and activists. The exhibition explores what disability justice looks like in the Twin Cities and why it's important. Inspired by the principles of the Disability Justice Movement, The Art of Disability Justice centers the narratives and leadership of individuals who have historically been most marginalized. The exhibition is curated by AmplifyMN: A Disability Justice Collective and the students in Art History 5950: Curating Disability Justice at the University of Minnesota - Twin Cities.

Image descriptions: (1) HML's wearable soft sculpture, Battlestar Gallactica, is composed of found materials. A shiny silver material is used to create a pointy shouder plate and tubes around the arms. Light blue fabrics with patterns on them compose soft ribs, breastbone, deltoids, and coils around the neck. (2) Janice Essick's This is a Picture of a Lady in the Nude has a figure drawn with pink-peach skin has long, black hair, thick eyebrows, and a mustache. They have brown eyes and long eyelashes. Essick painted the figure's bare skin, and she painted their hair with black paint and then drew with marker over it in some areas. The background is filled with energetic scribbles in blue-green and black that densely fill the space.
