Adaptation highlights artists living with disability or chronic illness, whose practice has evolved to facilitate bodily or psychological conditions.

Audiences are invited to witness artists who have adapted their artistic expression to the challenges and new potentials of working with their body. While some of these artists make artworks about their conditions, others have adapted their art making to better suit a lived experience with disability or chronic illness.

Artists: Ohni Blu, Bruno Booth, Marion Conrow, Pat Larter, Prue Stevenson, Nell Syme and Louise Zhang
