Kat Chudy (they/them) is a disabled queer American artist currently living and working in Tallahassee, Florida. They grew up the child of military parents, traveling extensively throughout the United States during their childhood and continuing to travel frequently whenever they can. They have been to 29 states and have visited extensively in Mexico, Brazil, and Canada. Chudy had lived in the southwest for more than 20 years and was forced to leave during the pandemic in search of better, more equitable health care. They have an extensive educational background in both art and science and seek to find the edge where the two disciplines meet and inform one another through the subject of their work – invisible disability. Chudy has shown work regionally in the southwest and southeast in places like El Paso, Texas, Las Cruces, New Mexico, and Albuquerque, New Mexico, as well as nationally in places like the Atlantic Gallery in New York and MICA in Baltimore. They have participated in print exchanges all over the country and internationally in Japan and Spain, and a juried print show in Dubai. They have won numerous awards, including second place and honorable mention at the SECAC annual juried exhibition and Best in Show at the Tuner Annual Spring Into Art show. Chudy participates yearly in SECAC - the Southeastern College Art Conference, charing panels and presenting research on access and disability aesthetics. They engage in a practice of platform and culture building through their podcast, DIY Access, and knowledge-sharing base, the Access Rhizome. Chudy is an advocate for disability rights, healthcare rights, and educational reform. Their work is shown both in disabled shows and venues, as well as mainstream exhibitions, determined to help bring disability culture to the mainstream as part of the larger picture of human experience.
