Princeton’s Ida B. Wells Just Data Lab 2022-23 Artist-in-Residence Chanika Svetvilas presents an artist’s talk related to her current Mindscapes Unveiled exhibition. The talk begins at 4:30 p.m. in the CoLab, followed by a viewing and reception at 5:45 p.m. in the Hurley Gallery.
Mindscapes Unveiled is a culminating exhibition from her year-long project, Anonymous Was the Data, which uplifts the individual lived experiences of Asian Americans and Pacific Islanders who have a mental health difference or condition through mapping their survey data about healthcare access and stigma. The collected data determines the shape of 3D printed prescription bottles in hybrid forms. The exhibition, which centers accessibility, includes drawings, video, sculpture and mixed media.
Presented by Princeton’s Department of African American Studies Ida B. Wells Just Data Lab in collaboration with the Lewis Center for the Arts. Cosponsored by the Program in Asian American Studies, Center for Health and Wellbeing, Council on Science and Technology, Effron Center for the Study of America, Office of Disability Services, and Princeton Humanities Council.
