The exhibition "Madness + Mobility: The Art of Inclusion" presents the works of four Vancouver-based artists and industrial designers who employ innovative and artful solutions to making art and space inclusive. Each artist examines the confinements - psychological, physical and economic – that artists and individuals can face when informed by mental health issues, physical impairment or other forms of marginalization. Engaging the concept of mobility - literally and metaphorically - these creators work to invent escape routes from confining restrictions, creating spaces of inclusion while underscoring the creative process essential to equitable access.
