About the event

We all have an inner life, a quiet and evocative space where we visualise our dreams and concerns.

The curators of this exhibition will give a special tour for mental Health Week of an important display of work that explores the way in which art has provided the artists a means by which they can explore their interior worlds, and changing mental states, as well as a means by which to find a release from that interior. These artworks give viewers an insight into the minds of the artists and in so doing promote empathy and understanding.

This event is presented by RMIT Gallery as part of the exhibition: The Door In The Dark: Selected Works From The Cunningham Dax Collection.
