2nd Annual Innovation in the Arts Award
On November 9th, the Global Mental Health Program presented JAVIER TÉLLEZ, acclaimed Venezuelan artist and filmmaker, with the 2nd Global Mental Health Award for Innovation in the Arts. Son of two psychiatrists, Tellez’s award-winning films and installations question definitions of normality and pathology, diminishing stereotypes associated with mental illness. Our program will include film clips, lecture, and discussion with this extraordinary artist. The event was moderated by John Hanhardt, Consulting Senior Curator, Smithsonian American Art Museum.
