What art and psychology can tell us about the future

Two regional exhibitions tap into psychology and maternal inheritance to share insights on our future.

Climate anxiety, also known as eco-anxiety, is a rapidly accelerating mental health concern. In 2021, the search engine Google reported a 565% increase in ‘climate anxiety’ searches as compared to the previous year.

In an upcoming exhibition at Braemar House and Gallery in the Blue Mountains, NSW, six artists will be exploring the psychological impacts of the climate crisis. Tipping Points brings together local artists who also work professionally in the mental health sector to provide unique insights into our future.
