Artist to host free talk

December 16, 2019

Mahlia Amatina, the talented artist behind Life on a Spectrum, hosts a free talk at South Hill Park

South Hill Park has the pleasure of hosting an exciting interactive exhibition entitled Life on a Spectrum by Mahlia Amatina. Mahlia uses visual art, writing, videography, and performance art to involve viewers in the exhibition space. Visitors can play an active role in the creative process as they are encouraged to interact with exhibit elements by generating their art using pre-cut magnetic shapes, and leaving responses to questions related to autism-specific traits.

The exhibition evolves as more reactions are collated and the narrative on neurodiversity continues to grow within the space. Mahlia says that she hasn’t done anything quite so dependent on audience interaction before, so she is excited to see how that pans out!

Mahlia Amatina was diagnosed with Asperger’s syndrome four years ago, and since then her work has revolved around raising awareness on autism and neurodiversity through her artwork. ‘Life on a Spectrum’ is supported by Arts Council England (ACE)

On Sun 12 Jan 2020, Mahlia will be offering the exciting opportunity to meet her and discuss her influences, her work and the exhibition ‘Life on A Spectrum’. This is a free event, but booking is essential – to book online click here or call our box office on 01344 484123 for more information.
