This event will be recorded for WBEZ’s Chicago Amplified.

Our society tries to press women and men into a standard mold, but few bodies conform to the way they are "supposed to" look or behave. Co-curated by Nina Corwin and Deborah Kent, Woman Made Gallery will explore the experiences of people whose uncommon bodies lead them to live outside the expected norms.

Poets Lily Diego and Endowed Chair in Disability Studies at University of Toledo, Jim Ferris; essayist and novelist Deborah Kent; acclaimed performance artist Tekki Lomniki, and others will share original work that is informed by, but not limited to, the experience of living with a disability.
 
This reading is co-curated by Nina Corwin and Deborah Kent.
