what is art if not making community?

        I’mstrong  aims to build a community of friends and artists who are passionate about our mission.         Selected artists will have the opportunity to participate in a one-day multimedia and multi-people exhibition in New York in the spring of 2024. Neurology digs deeper in the complexities ofthe nervous system, art offers a creative manifestation by expressing a unique perceptions, providing a window to the human mind. It helps to demystify a complex condition like MS.         By engaging viewers in a collaborative experience, the exhibition hopes to provide the tools to put a stop to misconceptions related to MS and to create a cohesive group that stands proudly on what is called “the margin” (in the words of bell hooks “Choosing the margin as a space of radicalopenness”).        The event will be an opportunity to experience different forms of artistic expression thus creating a space for knowledge.         Through science, art, and culture, the event will be dedicated to people living with MS and their communities. It will encourage them to familiarize themselves to what MS means for individuals and society.         Located in a contemporary art space in New York, the exhibition will host lectures by artists and experts, debates, workshops, artworks, and performances creating a supportive and inclusive community without preconseptions.         We will publish a pamphlet/zine in which will intervene art professionals, scientists, physiologists, art critics, experts and friends who will promote the understanding of MS and the connection between art and science.
