Miyuki Tanaka is an independent curator and producer. She has been working on projects that defy categorization under the theme of “disability as a perspective that redefines the world.” She produces exhibitions, performances, and various projects to rethink the way we view and perceive expressions together with audiences including disabled people. She is working on her doctoral thesis about how accessibility can bring out autonomy, creativity, and imagination of visually impaired people through analysis of the information processing and spatio-temporal cognition of visually impaired users of accessibility. With the support of a fellowship from the Asian Cultural Council, she is researching accessibility and audience engagement strategies of museums, theaters and cultural institutions in New York and the United States. More information can be found at her website.
