Chloe Crawford: Signs and Symptoms
February 24 • 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm• Free
Join Eugene Contemporary Art for our February exhibition opening “Signs and Symptoms” by Chloe Crawford, February 24th, from 6-9pm at Slighty Cafe in Eugene. Chloe works in a range of mediums, from painting and weaving to objects and graphic design.
From her statement: “This work is about interacting with the world as a disabled person. I am interested in what non-disabled people know about disability (the signs), and how that differs from what disabled people know (the symptoms).
The work hangs at different heights with different perspectives, altering typical single-level displays which reserve the most privileged views for people whose eyes fall precisely five feet from the ground. I invoke the overlooked and underestimated through everyday objects, teenage girls, and stay-at-home crafters as my stylistic influences. This shares a conceptual framework with disability: disabled people are routinely invisible and our contributions marginalized; we have historically been, and continue to be in many parts of the world, shut-in, self-taught outsiders.
