Event description
Art exhibition exploring the mental health journey of Amarno Inai & how the use of visual arts has facilitated healing, clarity and freedom

About this Event

In Amarno Inai's debut solo exhibition, KATHARSIS: Purification Through Art, he chronicles his lived experience with mental health. Through a series of illustrations, KATHARSIS marks key periods in Amarno's life, from dealing with depression and anxiety to self-actualisation through Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (C.B.T) and spiritual guidance.

The exhibition explores how art can be used to draw out turbulent emotions and inner conflicts which often cannot be explained through words.

Inai’s work not only seeks to bring an end to a chapter in his own life but to bring revelation and healing to black men and the wider community through the arts.

LAUNCH NIGHT: 22/02/2020 Time 6:30PM - 9:30PM

The launch night will feature a Q&A with Amarno, compèred by Sandra Griffiths, Founder of the Red Earth Collective, as well as complimentary food and drink for guests.

EXHIBITION DURATION: 22/02/2020 - 10/03/2020

In partnership with Punch, MandemMatter and the Red Earth Collective
