Script/Rescript features the artwork of ten artists who use historical and contemporary medicalizing scripts of their own bodies to colorfully rescript – or rewrite – visual language attributed to individual conditions of disability. An X-ray, a prosthesis, a cane, a crutch, a pill, a wheelchair tire, and a syringe are among the foundations on which to build new creative layers of empowered self-described embodiment. The work in this exhibition conveys disabled identity via new mapping, through-lines and mark-making, wherein the artists reject pathological archives by injecting their medical histories with memories, lived experiences, and sensorial attributes.

Script/Rescript is organized by the SDSU Art Galleries Program. The exhibition is curated by Lecturer Amanda Cachia in conjunction with Art 591: Gallery Exhibition Design. Script/Rescript and related events are sponsored by the School of Art and Design, the College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts, the Institute for Ethics and Public Affairs, the Department of English and Comparative Literature, Arts Alive SDSU, and One SDSU Community.
