Resilience: Danielle Radway & Mellissa Monsoon

Dates:11 April 2024 to 15 April 2024
Times:11am - 5pm

Danielle Radway and Mellissa Monsoon share their journey of what it is like to live with chronic health conditions. In 2018 Monsoon was diagnosed with Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH), a brain condition with no known cause or cure. Radway was diagnosed with Chiari Malformation 1 and Syringomyelia in 2008 and later diagnosed with Acromegaly in 2015.

The exhibition will explore what it is like for women living with illnesses in the healthcare system and how art can help visualise invisible symptoms. Both artists will share their diagnostic journeys and show how art has helped them process these life changes to be able to spread awareness.

Artworks include interactive art, illustration, printmaking, body casts, ceramics, photography, painting, video and sculpture.
