For the month of February Make.shift will offer Bellingham the opportunity to “stick their tongues out to distress.” We aim to explore the jovial comradery that is created by a chemical imbalance. We called out to artists in the community to share work inspired by living with mental illnesses, with a comedically defiant twist.
Make.shift welcomes guest curator, Javier Berzal de Dios, for this exhibition. Javier is an associate professor of Art History at Western Washington University. His work explores connections between visual arts, philosophy, and literature. His last publication was Visual Experiences in Cinquecento Theatrical Spaces, a book that studies Renaissance theatre architecture and design focusing on the spectators’ experiences. “Art and humor have always been reliable allies in my struggles with mental illness,” says Javier, “and I hope to bring cheer and encouragement to our community with this exhibition.”
The opening will be on Art Walk Friday, February 7th from 6-10pm. For more information about the Art Walk or Make.Shift please visit our website at makeshiftproject.com or contact Gallery Director, Gabrielle Olson, at email@example.com.
