Recovery in Art

recovery_in_art_banner2In 2014, I was invited by the New South Wales Consumer Advisory Group – Mental Health Inc (NSW CAG) to curate their annual Recovery in Art exhibition in celebration of Mental Health Month. NSW CAG received more than 100 submissions from artists all around Australia with lived experience of mental illness, working in broad mediums including painting, sculpture, photography, written word and poetry, video, and even a board game.

I worked closely with the project development team at NSW CAG to curate the exhibition, and oversaw the exhibition arrangement and installation. You can also read my curatorial foreword to the catalogue here.
