For this episode we sat down with art friend and curator Michaela Wetherell, to talk all about her new online gallery space, Pink Collar Gallery, and the new exhibition ‘Burnout’ by the podcast’s own Rosie Stronach!
Michaela started the online gallery as a means to continue curating whilst many venues were closed over lockdown. The gallery’s aim is to give a platform to and promote art created by underrepresented groups, and Michaela’s particular passions are highlighting female (under)representation within the arts and the relevance of working-class identity.
This is Rosie’s first solo exhibition which explores mental health within the creative community. ‘Burnout’ is an ongoing series which reflects upon the effects of poor mental stability resulting in a mental or emotional burnout.
