I am very proud to be part of this project organised by art from the margins in Brisbane. Red Chair and Magdalena have been selected for this group show.
The exhibition, developed by Moreton Bay Regional Council, draws its title from the well-known euphemism ‘the black dog’ for one of the most common mental health issues, depression. While butterflies refers to another very common affliction, that of anxiety.
Black Dogs, Blue Butterflies brings artists living with adversity together to break down the stigma associated with living with mental health conditions, physical or intellectual disabilities.
WHEN: Saturday 13 April – Saturday 18 May 2019
