Art in Translation: A Digital Catalogue Series

Welcome to Art in Translation: a digital catalogue series!

Art in Translation (a project of Bodies in Translation: Activist Art, Technology and Access to Life) serves to document and publish projects, exhibitions, artistic projects and research initiatives co-produced by Bodies in Translation and collaborating artists, scholars, and community members.

Using a digital platform, Art in Translation aims to provide artistic content in a range of accessible formats, including giving our readers the option to customize their viewing experience using a user interface tool designed by the Inclusive Design Research Centre at the Ontario College of Art and Design University.

Our digital catalogues feature past art exhibitions and other artistic initiatives and offer engaging supplemental multimedia work in addition to text-based, audio-based, and photo documentation of the exhibition.

We understand that offering multimedia formats is a crucial move towards broader accessibility. We recognize photographic documentation and text-based content as just two of many approaches for engaging art in a digital catalogue format. We hope to keep expanding our approach and to communicate with audiences whose needs are not always met by more traditional art spaces.

We hope you enjoy!
