Liz Atkin: Curdled
October 20-Dec 20, 2015
UCLA Medical Center & University of Southern California
The excitement continues for Gallery artist Liz Atkin as she takes her work all the way to LA!
Liz is a visual artist based in London. Compulsive Skin Picking dominated her life for more than 20 years, but through a background in dance and theatre, she confronted the condition to harness creative recovery.
She creates intimate artworks, photographs and performances exploring body-focused repetitive behaviour. Liz is an advocate for recovery and aims to de-stigmatise Compulsive Skin Picking and mental illness. She is visiting Los Angeles to exhibit her artwork at UCLA Medical Centre and University of Southern California. She is giving artist talks during her visit and will research the latest developments in diagnosis and treatment.
For those of you unable to make it to LA, Liz documents the journey of this exhibition in her blog.
