An art exhibition informed by stories from people who have experienced cancer.
Our exhibition uses narratives, taken from people who have experienced cancer, that explore both the non-linear movement of self-identity throughout a lifetime, and the movement of power from clinicians to patients, enabling patients to take more ownership of their own health. The loss of identity after a cancer diagnosis is a common experience, and the pathway to a new identity is often complex. We wanted to produce a collective voice through a series of artworks using metaphors, and visual narratives, informed by stories from people who have experienced cancer, to demonstrate this journey or movement from one identity to another.
How can people attend?
Visit the exhibition at the Tate Modern on Friday 26 – Sunday 28 April between 12-5. There is a Tate Late on Friday between 6-10pm
