Shannon Finnegan: Lone Proponent of Wall-to-Wall Carpet
Published by CUAG
Featuring texts by Fiona Wright and Heather Anderson
This free downloadable PDF is produced in conjunction with Shannon Finnegan: Lone Proponent of Wall-to-Wall Carpet, curated by Fiona Wright and Heather Anderson.
The exhibition featured suites of text-based portrait drawings, several portable murals, wood furniture and floor cushions. The furniture, cushions and Portable Mural 2 were debuted at CUAG.
In the publication, Wright and Anderson reflect on this compelling and often humorous body of work by the Brooklyn-based Finnegan, which at once calls attention to and destabilizes ableism, while urging institutions to examine their responsibility for providing safe, welcoming and accessible environments for all visitors.
This is CUAG’s first accessible PDF, which means that it is informed by the WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) standard outlined by the W3C. The standard includes such components as contrast, text size, document order, content tagging and alt-text image descriptions. It ensures that low-vision users and users of assistive technologies such as screen readers can have unhindered reading experiences and access the PDF’s full content.
