Crip Art Chats are a chance to build community among people interested in disability perspectives and aesthetics. No specialized understanding of art, art history, or crip theory is required; you already have all the knowledge you need to participate!
Each online session is an opportunity for a small group of registered participants to view and discuss works from MoMA’s collection. Participants and facilitators will work together to generate ideas about these works, highlighting disability perspectives.
Crip Art Chats will be hosted by Isa Saldaña, MoMA/Studio Museum Public Programs Fellow, and Annie Leist, Associate Educator in Community and Access Programs. Each session is 90 minutes.
Participants are encouraged to stay for the duration of the program and are invited to be an active part of the discussion. To keep the conversations intimate, registration is not automatic. You will receive an email with details on how to join the program if your registration is confirmed. Registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. Once registration is full, a wait list will be offered.
Please note: Crip Art Chats take place over Zoom meeting and are best experienced through the Zoom app. If you do not have a working knowledge of Zoom, please reach out to us at [email protected].
All images will be described during the program and sent to participants in advance. This program will be captioned using Rev automated captions. If you require any additional accommodations, please reach out to [email protected] as soon as possible.

Artist-provided description: In this video still, a set of hands sort seven pillbox compartments on an embroidered tablecloth. The image is taken from an overhead position with the hands partially obstructing the view of the differently colored compartments. The compartments are yellow, blue, pink, green, and white. They are filled with differently colored pills too. There is a patch of bright sunlight on the tablecloth and there are a few pill bottles barely visible along the edge of the frame. Bright orange pills are held in the palm of one hand.
