Fran Catherine Flaherty
This series of prints reflects on Flaherty’s experiences as a “brown American woman married to a white man” whose Deafness is also often non-apparent to strangers. In restaurants and other settings, Flaherty’s access to a service animal is often questioned. In these works, Flaherty reflects on her crip rituals of negotiating access.
In capturing the ways that others question her Deafness and mobility disabilities, she invites the audience to reflect on stereotypes about disability.
