Redefining contemporary art.

When you own a piece of NIAD art, you connect with the unique story of an artist with disabilities, amplify an original voice in contemporary art, and empower a non-traditional artist to earn income from their work.

About the Exhibition

NIAD is pleased to present a collaborative two-part exhibition—half in person at the Arts Center at Duck Creek in New York, half in NIAD's virtual gallery—showcasing works by Karen May.

Karen May has been a prolific member of NIAD's studio program for over a decade, and each exhibition features a different selection of her drawings on Artforum advertisements. 

The contrast between the magazine's clean precision and May's voracious, instinctive drawing underscores the gap between the genuine urge to create art, and the glossy presentation of that urge when it's been packaged for sale.
