Through humour and pathos, the depictions of vulnerability in Making Mad resonate on a human scale. The featured artists unapologetically take cues from their own misgivings to draw attention to our universal susceptibility to harm. They debunk a stigma that equates with weakness, shame and isolation, embracing the compassion, intimacy and intensity of how vulnerability teaches us to live with an awareness of the likelihood of change.
