Stewart will be exhibiting Fragment 7 in the forthcoming exhibition, Talking Sense: The Changing Vocabulary of Mind and Brain at The Portico Library in Manchester.
“The standard guide for most psychologists, psychiatrists and services remains the ‘Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders’ – first published in 1952. In the exhibition ‘Talking Sense’, fifty artworks are paired with fifty phrases created by jumbling the contents of this textbook’s most recent edition, whose terminology has been criticised by professionals and survivors of harmful treatments. By reorganising this language and juxtaposing it with eclectic artworks we hope to open up a space for helpful conversations around the future of care.”
Join the artists from 6pm to 8pm on Thursday 16th January, for the free public preview of at The Portico Library.
