Kelly Mathews: Being Bipolar in a Polarized World

@ Dittmar Memorial Gallery at Northwestern University

1999 Campus Dr, Evanston, IL 60208

Opening Thursday, September 22nd, from 6PM - 8PM

On view through Thursday, October 20th

This exhibit created by Chicago artist Kelly Mathews, exemplifies how the personal is political within the context of art. Having been diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder after years of destructive behavior, Mathews understands the meaning of “edge” and often steps close to it when creating art, resulting in bold and fearless work. Her power lies in the purest form of honesty. There is no pretension or art speak. What we see is what she feels.
