Katherine Araniello was a London-based live art, performance and video artist, who responded to the negative representation of disability. She used a range of mediums including film, large scale production and live art performances. Araniello was a member of The Disabled Avant-Garde with deaf artist Aaron Williamson.

In 2023, Katherine’s website was purchased and became part of the group of art-related websites.

As an artist with my own disabilities (I am deaf and colorblind), I loved the way Katherine integrated her disability into her artwork rather than using art to disguise or hide it. It is a lesson for all of us who have a disability of some sort to learn to embrace it and use it.

Katherine was famous for The Dinner Party performance. It is a must-watch, please see below.
