Candy Chang is currently creating a large-scale participatory mural in Philadelphia. Inspired by the I Ching, The Atlas of Tomorrow is a device for philosophical reflection that includes 64 fable-like guides to help people contemplate their lives and destigmatize discussion around mental health. Scheduled to open in July 2016, the project is a collaboration with The City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, the Department of Behavioral Health and Disability Services, and other local organizations. Chang invites all to paint the mural with her and join in on conversations and reflective events around mental health from January through July 2016. The mural dedication is July 7 at 11am at 533 S Juniper St and all are welcome. More info here.
The Onassis Cultural Centre in Athens, Greece will feature three of Chang’s installations, including Before I Die, Confessions, and The School of the Future in the exhibition 3 Experiments in the City by Candy Chang. More info here.
