Alice Wingwall

McCulloh also mentions the work of Alice Wingwall, but her work did not really inspire me. Basically she went to a museum with her guide dog and ‘reclaimed’ the museum space by sending her dog to different parts of the exhibition hall and photographing it, claiming not only the museum space, but also photography and visualization:

Her opinion, however, is one that deserves to be noted:

The needed breakthrough for blind artists is not just museum accessibility, but being exhibited with mainstream sighted artists on equal terms, says Wingwall. “We can all yell and scream about accessibility and all of this, but as artists we have to be doing good work. That’s the basis of real change.”
