Exhibit Explores How Society Views Disability

November 12, 2010

Photographer Gustavo Valle looks at the theme of how society views disability in “Discapacidad,” an exhibit of 30 works on display at the Casa del Cuño in San José.

During a month of visits to the Instituto Andrea Jiménez, a special education institute in San Francisco de Dos Ríos, southeast of San José, Valle photographed the students’ everyday activities and gave them a camera so they could take their own photographs.

The exhibit is up through Dec. 1 at the Casa del Cuño, part of the La Aduana Arts and Technology Center in eastern San José’s Barrio La California. A forum on opportunities for people with disabilities is planned for Nov. 25 to complement the exhibit.
