Mindful: Exploring Mental Health Through Art will feature 33+ works created by 14 contemporary artists, with an emphasis on the topics of anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts and tendencies, and PTSD. The exhibition explores the impact that mental illness has on society, and how the arts can encourage positive self-expression and guide effective mental health promotion and treatment. The project also examines links between mental disorders and artistic tendencies through the inclusion of artworks made by those who have been diagnosed with mental illnesses and those who have not. The exhibition includes innovative art expressions rooted in traditional craft materials, as well as art that explores unexpected relationships among craft and painting, sculpture, and installation art.
