ON DISPLAY (Wellington) to mark International Day of Persons with Disabilities

  • Midlands Park Lambton Quay Wellington, Wellington, 6011 New Zealand (map)

On 3rd December, Touch Compass will recognise the United Nations' International Day of Persons with Disabilities with two distinct presentations of ON DISPLAY, one in Auckland and one in Wellington.

ON DISPLAY, by Heidi Latsky of New York is a deconstructed art exhibit/fashion show and commentary on the body as a spectacle and society's obsession with body image. It turns a cast of diverse bodies into a sculpture court where the performers are the sculptures. ON DISPLAY began as a simple human sculpture court and is now a global movement, a growing portfolio of works that explore and demonstrate inclusion through art.
