“Don’t mind if I do” with work by Felicia Griffin at moCa Cleveland

moCa Cleveland 11400 Euclid Ave., Cleveland

"Don’t mind if I do" destabilizes rigid ableist and exclusionary museum “best practices” like sparse seating, untouchable objects, dense wall labels, and guards who protect rather than invite engagement. It is a project built upon a framework of flexibility. By welcoming glitches, inviting informality and messiness, and unsettling the hierarchy of objects, "Don’t mind if I do" prioritizes people over artwork and makes more room for us to show up as our full selves.
