Cripping the Galleries is a series of live public programs featuring local artists activating museums through the lens of crip culture, access, and belonging.* Cripping the Galleries is hosted by the Museum of Contemporary Art, in close collaboration with Bodies of Work: A Network of Disability Art and Culture.

For this edition of Cripping the Galleries, artist Janhavi Khemka performs Impress/ion, 2024. During this intimate, participatory performance, Khemka invites audience members to sit with her, three at a time, as she asks each audience member to “teach her” their individual first names. Depending on vision and vibrations perceivable through touch, participants can expect to spend a total of four minutes each until the group reaches a consensus on each learned name. The performance lasts three hours, until the artist is depleted of energy.

Please note: While this is a participatory performance, we invite audience members to choose to engage with it or remain a viewer of the work.

American Sign Language (ASL) and English CART captioning are available for this event.
