In all our stimming brilliance: neurodiversity in contemporary arts practice - Part 2
Part 2 'Neurodivergent curating versus the curation of neurodiversity' in a series of online discussions introducing neurodiversity and neurodivergent identity to arts practitioners. Within the visual arts, neurodivergent people have conventionally been present either as subject matter (the enigmatic and eccentric outsider, the silent and unreachable child, etc.), client-recipients for art activities facilitated around neurotypical frameworks of therapy and social integration (often related to concepts of “worthwhile employment”), or as “outsider” artists for whom their neurodivergence is used by dealers and collectors to authenticate a brand. This process could be described as the curation of neurodiversity for the benefit of the neurotypical gaze. In this talk, three practitioners, Sonia Boué, Ashokkumar Mistry and Bruce Phillips, who work as artists, curators and critics, discuss how to counter that through the potentials of neurodivergent-led curation and critical practice.
