Artist Talk: Impaired Perceptions

Brian Steel

Rutledge Building - Dina’s Place / DiGiorgio Student Center
Sep 16, 2015 (5:00 PM - 7:00 PM)

To kick off Winthrop’s October celebration of Disability Month, guest speaker, Brian Charles Steel will be on campus to speak September 16, 2015 along with an installation of his photographic exhibit, “Impaired Perceptions.” Born with short fiber syndrome, Steels’ black and white portraits of himself and other physically impaired people explores the concept of perception and socially constructed identity. Some of his subjects have physical impairments that are not visible, which further challenges the notion that seeing is believing.
