Film Summary:

Nexus/Bodyworks was a two year, mutli-faceted art and education project highlighting the work of artists with varied physical disabilities. This video, made by the Nexus artists themselves, documents their struggles with different mediums and perceptions, and stresses that the integrity of someone's art is more important than the given artist's (dis)ability

For 30 years Nexus has served the public in Philadelphia by increasing access to and understanding of "Today’s Art". Nexus was conceived at a time when very few non-commercial galleries existed in Philadelphia. Established in 1975, Nexus Foundation for Today’s Art is an artist-run, not-for-profit exhibition space. Nexus serves as an incubator for local emerging and experimental artists engaged in new art practices, and a venue for traveling and curated art exhibits exploring a wide range of present-day issues. Our exhibitions of challenging, innovative, and compelling contemporary art are intended to stimulate creative thought and dialog among the diverse visitors to Nexus.
