To mark the thirty-first anniversary of the passage of the Americans with Disabilities Act, Bronx-based dance artist and educator Kayla Hamilton showcases her work in conversation with peer artists as a celebration of the contributions of disabled artists of color. Panelists include Joselia Hughes, Leroy Moore, Devin Hill, and Mark Travis Rivera.
Since 2015, Access and Community Programs at the Whitney has invited an artist or artist collective to share their work on the occasion of the anniversary of the passage of the ADA. Past artists have included Heidi Latsky Dance, Kinetic Light, Jerron Herman, and Rodney Evans. The ADA Anniversary Performance celebrates and uplifts disability artistry.
