How can culture and museums contribute to well-being in society?
Architect and artist, Apolonija Šušteršič first installed Light Therapy in 1999 at Moderna Museet in Stockholm to explore how contemporary museums can act as a public space, and as social spaces for wellbeing. In this talk with MOCA’s Artistic Director, November Paynter, the artist will share aspects of her independent research to consider how institutions can find ways to bridge disciplines and introduce ideas to improve public well-being.
Light Therapy is the second project in the Art in Use series at MOCA. This year-long program presents works and public events that ask: Can art motivate social, political and cultural change? What meaningful role does art play in our lives? How can we use it as a tool?
The event is free with registration.
Member registration is open.
Public registration will open Wednesday, January 9.
