In an Ambitious Initiative, Artists Around the World Will Create New Work Exploring Mental Health at Five Major Museums

“As mental health becomes increasingly central to conversations about how to live a healthy life, four international museums are coming together for a new initiative that examines how art and culture can offer new perspectives on the subject. Called Mindscapes, the program is being funded by the Wellcome Trust, a charitable health research foundation from London.

The yearlong program is a partnership with the Brooklyn Museum in New York, the Mori Art Museum in Tokyo, the Gropius Bau in Berlin, and the Museum of Art and Photography in Bengaluru, India—as well as the Hamwe Festival in Kigali, Rwanda, and the Library Foundation of Los Angeles and Los Angeles Public Library.”
