About E.A.A.T.

E.A.A.T. is the culminating exhibition of Leonardo CripTech Incubator, an art and technology fellowship for disability innovation. Encompassing residencies, workshops, presentations, publications, and education, this innovation incubator creates a platform for disabled artists to engage and remake creative technologies through the lens of accessibility. Employing a broad understanding of technologies, including prosthetic tools, neural networks, software. and the built environment, CripTech Incubator reimagines enshrined notions of how a body-mind can move, look, communicate. Comprising the inaugural cohort of CripTech Incubator, the five artists developed their projects in four residencies in California: Beall Center, Santa Barbara Center for Art Science and Technology (SBCAST), RadMad Disability Lab at UC Berkeley, and Thoughtworks Arts, which closed in 2023.


Organized by curators Vanessa Chang and Lindsey D. Felt, with support from program curator Claudia Alick, E.A.A.T. will be on view at UCI Claire Trevor School of the Arts Beall Center for Art + Technology (Beall Center) from September 30, 2023 through January 13.  2024. An E.A.A.T. partner, Beall Center is free admission and open to the public during the academic year Monday–Saturday from 12 noon–6 pm. Check here for holidays and other closures.
