White Matter showing in Sydney
White Matter will be showing as part of the second iteration of Group Therapy: Mental Distress in a Digital Age at the University of New South Wales, Sydney 20 SEP – 11 NOV 2017, curated by Vanessa Bartlett as part of The Big Anxiety Festival.
Group Therapy presents a collection of artworks and research material that explores connections between mental health and the values, political conditions, and technologies that structure our lives. The first iteration of the exhibition was originally presented at FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology), UK.
The Big Anxiety is a new kind of festival, fostering adventurous collaborations between artists, scientitsts and the broader community to address some of the big challenges in mental health. Generating extra-ordinary insights into ordinary life experiences, the festival invites neurologically and culturally diverse audiences to explore the range of anxieties that permeate contemporary society. Spanning over 20 venues across Greater Sydney, the festival aims to be a transformative force in both arts and health.
