FLUX: Responding to Head & Neck Cancer, 2017; dc3 Art Projects, Edmonton, AB
An exhibition and interdisciplinary project curated by Lianne McTavish and organized by Minn Soon, Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry at the University of Alberta. For a year, artists, writers, medical professionals and clinicians have been listening to, learning from, and collaborating with people recovering from head and neck cancer. One result is FLUX, an exhibition featuring work by six participating artists, ranging from video installation to photography, print, sculpture, and drawing. The diverse works reveal aspects of the cancer experience that often remain hidden. Appealing to all of the senses, they convey the confusion, catastrophe, and hope associated with a serious illness, showing that healing is an uneven and continuous process.
